Expect delays when dropping off your garbage at the Comox valley Waste Management Centre. 

Over the next two months, the existing public drop off area is being removed and replaced at the centre at 3699 Bevan Road in Cumberland.

During construction, you’ll be directed to use temporary drop off areas, which will mean increased wait times. 

However, you will be able to access the recycling depot without any delays.

“We are asking residents to please minimize all non-essential trips to the landfill during this time, as this construction is expected to increase wait times up to 30 minutes during peak hours,” explained Jesse Lee, manager of solid waste services. 

“The recycling depot, located outside of the scale, should not be affected by the construction project.” 

The Comox Valley Regional District says the public drop off garbage bin area, also known as the bin wall, has reached its end of life and needs to be replaced. 

According to the CVRD, this construction “will result in an expanded and improved drop off area, with additional bins for more diversion and landfill materials and a better customer experience.”
