Solid Waste Management

Solid waste management involves many individuals and organizations including you! The RDNO operates, monitors and maintains Diversion & Disposal Facilities and Transfer Stations where residents can dispose of garbage and divert certain materials from landfill. We also develop and support information resources, waste reduction initiatives and strategic planning to support our goal of reducing per capita waste in the region by over 35% between 2018-2028.

Curbside Collection Information

The RDNO does not provide curbside collection services for recycling, garbage and yard & garden waste.

Find information on residential curbside recycling collection as well as recycling depot information with the Recycle BC - North Okanagan Recycling Guide for Packaging & Paper Products.

For residential garbage collection contact your municipality or find information in the following links (please note some municipalities also provide separated organics collection for their residents which is listed on their respective pages):

If you are a resident of the District of Coldstream, Township of Spallumcheen or one of the Electoral Areas and wish to receive curbside garbage collection you must engage the services of a private contractor as there are no municipally provided garbage collection in these areas.
