The District of North Saanich does not provide garbage services. If residents wish to obtain garbage collection service, they must contact one of the local private garbage collection companies to arrange pick up. Alternatively, some people choose to drop their garbage off at the Hartland landfill at #1 Hartland Avenue.
Curbside recycling pick-up is provided to North Saanich residents by the Capital Regional District (CRD).
If you are a North Saanich resident in need of a replacement blue box or bag, you may obtain one from the CRD’s contractor, Emterra Environmental at 304 John St in Victoria. You can contact them at 250-385-4399 for more information.
While the District carries a limited supply of blue boxes and bags at the Municipal Hall as a courtesy to our residents, if we are out, please contact Emterra for your replacement.
There are a number of recycling depots in the Region that will take items that are not accepted in the CRD Blue Box Program.
For more information about the CRD Blue Box Program, including a list of accepted items and a schedule of collection days, please visit the CRD Blue Box Program website.
