We are no longer accepting window glass, shower doors, patio doors, wooden windows, or mirrors. These products can be disposed of at the Regional Landfill at 1105 Cedar Rd. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your continued support of the Nanaimo Recycling Exchange!
The Nanaimo Recycling Exchange previously offered Event Bins for no charge. We no longer have the funds or ability to transport these bins to events in Nanaimo and the District. Apologies for any inconvenience. You are still welcome to collect your own recycling at the event and bring it in to us at the depot ! Thank you to your continued support of the Nanaimo Recycling Exchange !
As of March 15, 2013 customers will pay a higher fee to drop off yard waste at the NRE. This is because yard waste is now composted; the result is rich soil that can be used in gardening and landscaping applications. But this does mean that the costs are higher for the NRE, and so we must ask customers to help absorb the cost.
The new fee scale is
$5 minimum drop off
$10 car or van
$15 regular truck or trailer
Overload rates apply
Thanks for your continued support!
As of November 1, 2012, the NRE no longer accepts drywall (gypsum board or gyprock) for recycling. Alpine Disposal & Recycling at 2250 McGarrigle Road (off Northfield Rd) is accepting drywall for recycling. Their fee for drop-off is $211/metric tonne, with a minimum charge of $10. Alpine can be reached at 751-1089 for more info.
