Recycling

The Town of Comox partnered with Recycle BC for processing the recycling from curbside carts. 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. Recycle BC sets the guidelines for what is acceptable recycling content.

It is important to keep recyclables out of our valuable and limited landfill space. Please review the Recycling specific FAQs section below and explore the many tools and resources on our main solid waste webpage, especially the Calendar and Wizard tools and the GENERAL FAQs section.
