The Recycling & Waste Management Division manages solid waste within the Cowichan Valley Regional District. From collection to final disposal, it's our job to help ensure that all CVRD residents have access to responsible waste management options.
But we do so much more than simply dispose of waste. We also work hard to help our region Reduce, Reuse and Recycle materials before they become waste. That's why the CVRD adopted the Zero Waste mandate in 2002, as a challenge and a principle for developing a sustainable economy as we learn to decrease consumption and turn our waste into new resources. The CVRD invites you to learn more about Zero Waste and take part in the Cowichan Zero Waste Challenge
