New contractor for curbside waste collection

Central Okanagan residents that wheel their garbage, recycling and yard waste carts to the curb each week will have a new contractor starting June 1, 2019.

Environmental 360 Solutions Inc. won the contract through a formal request for proposal process. The contract covers approximately 60,000 households in Kelowna, West Kelowna, Lake Country, Peachland and Electoral Areas East and West.

The only change in service residents should expect to see is an additional month of yard waste pick-up in December. However, as always if you notice a missed pick up or wish to report damage to curbside carts, please call the Regional District Waste Reduction Office at 250-469-6250.
