Glass, Styrofoam & Plastic Bags considered “contamination” in curbside recycling

5.1 percent of the items Nanaimo residents are trying to recycle at the curb don’t belong there.

Sanitation and Recycling Manager Charlotte Davis says items like glass, Styrofoam and plastic bags can only be recycled at a recycling depot.

Davis says she has put together a user-friendly guide showing what can and can’t be recycled at the curb.

Every Nanaimo resident will get one when the new garbage and recycling schedule is sent out at the end of December.
