Your existing garbage, recycling and/or food waste containers belong to you. There are a number of creative and environmentally friendly ways to repurpose used garbage/ recycling/ food waste containers and keep them out of the landfill, such as:
extra storage for tools, potting soil, mulch, yard waste
animal feed storage
DIY potato/ carrot planter
collect your depot items (i.e. film plastic, glass, foam packaging or refundables)
If you have any great ideas to repurpose your used containers, please share them with us at curbside [at] rdn.bc.ca or tag us on social media @rdnanaimo.
The RDN is currently exploring options for the collection and recycling of used containers. Please continue to check back here in the fall for more information.
