Blue Bin it and we’ll pick it up

The Village of Nakusp provides residential curbside recycling pickup of accepted products. Curbside pickup of accepted items is divided up into two (2) Zones for the community, with pick up taking place each week alternating between the zones.  The new Zone Map is attached here.  See the Curbside Pickup Schedule below for the pickup dates. 

As we transition into the new blue bins, we will continue to pick up clear bags until June 30, 2020.  As of July 1, 2020 we will NOT pick up clear bags.  

Simply put your accepted products in your blue bin(s), and place them at your curbside on collection day (see schedule below). Please ensure that the blue bins are out at the curb by 7 a.m. 

Accepted products include paper, plastic containers, aluminum containers and steel containers
