RDNO Diversion and Disposal Facilities Remind of Social Distancing on Site

Posted Tuesday, March 24, 2020

The RDNO’s Diversion and Disposal Facilities (DDFs) continue to be open to serve the residents and businesses of the region during the current Covid-19 pandemic. However, the RDNO is asking people to follow the orders of the Provincial Health Officer during their trip and to consider whether a visit is truly necessary.

Follow Social Distancing

Precautions are in place to reduce the spread of the disease, and we implore every customer to follow the clear rules of social distancing.

The Provincial Health Officer has ordered everyone to stay 2 metres apart from others, unless they are from the same household, to limit transmission of COVID-19. These efforts are temporary but crucial.

Delay non-essential trips

The RDNO asks that residents consider delaying non-essential trips to DDFs until the current pandemic subsides. While we are open regular summer hours, ask yourself if you could wait a couple of weeks to get rid of that old mattress, broken refrigerator, or pile of yard waste. 

Essential trips may include refuse that must be disposed of for hygiene and sanitation. We ask that you pay your fees with a credit card or debit card, if possible. 

The more we all follow these precautions, the sooner this pandemic will be over. We are all in this together. Please follow the Provincial Health Officer’s orders regarding social distancing to do your part to slow the spread of COVID-19 and to keep yourself and facility workers safe.
