The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) electoral area roadside collection referendum was held on November 16, 2013.
The service would include weekly pick up of garbage and recycling in the CVRD electoral areas A, B and C, excluding Denman Island, Hornby Island, the Royston garbage collection area and the Mount Washington resort community.
The costs of the service, if approved, would be shared amongst the owners of the properties receiving it. The initial service contract would be for a period of three years at a cost of approximately $150 per household, per year.
The official results of the proposed roadside solid waste pick-up service in electoral areas A, B and C are as follows:
No: 3139 (73 per cent)
Yes: 1153 (27 per cent)
Total votes cast: 4,292
Elector turnout: 29 per cent
