Automated Waste Collection Services

The City of Nanaimo collects garbage & recycling on alternate weeks, and your organics cart every week from single-family properties and eligible multi-family dwellings (duplexes, triplexes & fourplexes).

*Remember to have your carts at the curb by 8am!

Please note: We do not collect waste from apartment buildings, stratas or mobile home parks.  Talk to your building manager about this service.

Carts are the property of the City of Nanaimo and must be left at the property in the event a resident moves.
