Sayward Clean Up Days Event – April 18th &19th

Due to COVID-19 the Comox Strathcona Waste Management Service (CSWM) is rescheduling the April 18th & 19th Sayward clean up days. The CSWM service is committed to hosting three (3) events in 2020 and will plan to host the April event at a later date. This date will be communicated in advance to residents. We will proceed with the event in July, unless otherwise noted.

If you have access to municipal curbside collection and recycling program please refrain from using the landfill at this time. Rural residents without curbside pickup should limit their visits to yard and essential waste only and expect the following operational changes at the Campbell River Landfill: 

  • No cash will be accepted – payment by credit or debit card only
  • There will be limited drop off stalls to comply with physical distancing requirements
  • Only two vehicles will have access to the recycling depot at any one time
  • Opening times may be delayed to permit the disinfection of all equipment

The Sayward Recycling Depot is open. Please use social distancing when heading to the depot to avoid the spread of disease. Please ensure your material is sorted properly.
