Nanaimo Organic Waste work with the Regional District of Nanaimo
Welcome to the Green Bin Program
Weekly green bin food and kitchen waste collection is now underway for all single family homes in the Regional District of Nanaimo Electoral Areas, Lantzville, Parksville, Qualicum Beach and City of Nanaimo.
Since the Green Bin Program started in October 2010, the average household has diverted almost 2.5 kilograms of food and kitchen waste per week. Instead of going to the landfill and generating greenhouse gases, your organic material is transformed into soil enhancing compost.
Please keep your green bin material contaminant-free
Line your containers with newspaper, paper bags or certified compostable bags or place your scraps in loose. Click here for more information on lining your containers.
No plastic bags, plastic containers, Styrofoam, metal or glass in the green bin.
