Adverse Weather Disruption to Collection Service

Sometimes severe winter weather can effect curbside collection by causing unsafe driving conditions and roads blocked by downed trees or power lines.

Safety is the priority for the collection contractor. Slippery roads can be unsafe for large collection vehicles, putting collection staff and other road users at risk.

During severe winter weather every effort is made to collect the curbside materials. If a regular collection day is missed due to weather or road conditions, the following procedure will apply:

In the event of severe weather the RDN Curbside App is the best source of information about collection related news. The App is free to download to any smart device from either the App Store or Google Play. The RDN Curbside App gives you direct access to your collection schedule, the "What Goes Where?" digital library for easy material sorting, Curbside Alerts and Notices. Download for free today!

Information can also be accessed from the RDN webpage at www.rdn.bc.ca (look for the alert section on the home page), facebook or on Twitter @RDNanaimo

Road Maintenance Responsibilities

Please note that the Regional District is not responsible for road maintenance (such as snow clearing). In the electoral areas this is a function of Emcon Services, a contractor to the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure. Roads and streets within municipalities are maintained by municipal crews.
