Used Collection Containers

Used Collection Containers

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
  • rain barrels
  • 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.
