Zero Waste Initiatives
Single Use Carryout Bags
The City of Nanaimo is dedicated to protecting our environment and infrastructure. As a result, we are keen to reduce the impact that single-use checkout bags have in our community and beyond.
Spring 2019 Public Consultation: Thank you to the community members and business owners that provided input on how best to manage the many challenges that single-use plastic bags create in our City and beyond.

Carry Out Service
The City of Nanaimo provides this service to individual residents that meet the program requirements to assist with collection of curbside waste. Only certain medical conditions qualify. If you require assistance with getting your waste collected, please contact the Public Works Department.
Keep Nanaimo Clean
We are working to keep our city clean with the Keep Nanaimo Clean campaign. The campaign aims to eliminate litter and improve the cleanliness of Nanaimo. These are ambitious goals but, with your help, we can achieve them. Please take a look at some posters that were developed to make people think twice before they create litter. You are free to print these images and use them to help us keep Nanaimo clean.
