Accessibility: I use a mobility device or have other accessibility requirements. How can I receive my FoodCycler appliance?

We have designed our program with accessibility in mind. We have several options for you to get you set up with your appliance. Appliance pick-up events will take place at a City of Nelson facility with an access ramp to the main door. Registration tables and appliances will be on the first floor of the building, and staff can assist residents with carrying their appliances to a vehicle. Please note, a video tutorial will be displayed on the upper floor of the building, which is accessible only by stairs or chair-lift. If you would like to attend a pick-up event, and the second floor is not accessible to you, please let us know at the time of booking.  

Residents requiring accommodation can schedule a home drop-off of their appliance. Program staff will deliver an appliance and educational materials, and assist with appliance setup if needed. 

For other program accessibility inquiries, please contact organics@nelson.ca
