The RDN’s solid waste facilities remain open, but at reduced capacity, with regularly scheduled hours of operation 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., 7 days a week. Residential customers should expect lengthy delays and note that weekends are typically busier.
The two facilities accept debit and credit and the public is encouraged to use ‘tap.’ Cash will not be accepted at this time.
Commercial traffic is being given priority at both locations.
Please ensure physical distancing when interacting with facility staff.
Curbside Collection Service
Additional precautions have been put in place to protect the collection drivers:
All garbage must be bagged and securely tied, including all paper towels, tissues, toilet paper, face masks, gloves, and disposable sanitary wipes (flushable and compostable) - these items cannot be disposed of in your recycling nor food waste containers.
If someone in your household is sick, double-bag and securely tie all personal waste.
Waste that do not adhere to the above guidelines will be LEFT BEHIND, NO EXCEPTIONS.
As of October 1st, the RDN rolled out the new automated curbside collection service - a cleaner, safer and smarter way to collect waste. Simply roll your carts to the curb on your scheduled collection day. The new collection truck will empty the carts and return them back to the curb using a mechanical arm operated by the crew from inside the cab of the truck.
