This service is included in resident's yearly tax payments and all residential property owners pay the same amount of $210. The residents on the kitchen waste test program pay $212.50. The recycling programs in Oak Bay and throughout Greater Victoria are coordinated  by the Capital Regional District. 

Hazardous Materials should be disposed of appropriately, do not let dangerous materials go down the drain! There is a regional source control program in place.
