COST OF EXTRA GARBAGE BAG INCREASES 50%

The fee for putting out an extra bag of garbage on collection day will be increasing to $3.00 beginning January 1, 2015.

Nanaimo residents can purchase garbage tags when their garbage exceeds the one container limit on their scheduled garbage collection day. Attaching a tag to the extra standard size container or bag allows for the extra pickup. Residents may place a maximum of two additional containers or bags at the curb.

The old 'orange' garbage tags that residents have at home will still be accepted for collection. As well, retailers that have the old tags will continue to sell them at $2.00 until their supply runs out. The new 'blue' garbage tags will then be sold at $3.00.

For a list of Nanaimo facilities and retail locations that sell garbage tags, visit the City's website.
