The Town of Comox and Recycle BC entered into a partnership for the collection of recycling from curbside blue boxes. Recycle BC is a non-profit organization that is responsible for residential recycling programs in many areas across BC, either directly or by working with local governments, First Nations, private companies and not-for-profit organizations.

The Comox Valley Waste Management Centre, which is managed by the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD). The CVRD advised the Town that effective January 1, 2021 the area landfill will be closed on all recognized statutory holidays. As a result, the Town of Comox 2022 waste collection schedule has changed for both residents and businesses that receive curbside collection, as well as for those residents and businesses that have frontend container collection services directly from Emterra Environmental.
