Can I opt out of the program?

All eligible residents are required by bylaw to participate in the curbside pick-up program and cannot opt out. This ensures that costs per household are kept as low as possible and encourages broad participation. Only those with Farm Status on their property may request an exemption from the program. Call the Recycling Hotline at (250) 746-2540 or email to request an exemption (must be able to supply Notice of Assessment showing active farm status).
