COVID-19: RDN Response

Facility Operations

  • The RDN’s solid waste facilities remain open, but at reduced capacity, with regularly scheduled hours of operation 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., 7 days a week. Residential customers should expect lengthy delays and note that weekends are typically busier.
  • The two facilities accept debit and credit and the public is encouraged to use ‘tap.’ Cash will not be accepted at this time.
  • Commercial traffic is being given priority at both locations.
  • Please ensure social distancing when interacting with facility staff.

Curbside Collection Service

  • RDN residents can now buy extra garbage bag tags online at www.getinvolved.rdn.ca/extrabagtags .
  • Additional precautions have been put in place to protect the collection drivers:
    • All garbage must be bagged and securely tied, including
    • all paper towels, tissues, toilet paper, face masks, gloves, and disposable sanitary wipes (flushable and compostable) - these items cannot be disposed of in your recycling nor food waste containers.
    • If someone in your household is sick, double-bag and securely tie all personal waste.
  • Waste that do not adhere to the above guidelines will be LEFT BEHIND, NO EXCEPTIONS.
