Help us continue to manage over 95% of collected materials by recycling. Recycle containers and paper at home (in most communities). Take flexible plastics and foam to the depot.

Explore other rooms in your home for recycling opportunities – the bathroom, office, garage all have lots of packaging and paper destined for great things – you just have to give them the chance!

We manage 98% of the plastic we collect by recycling, and most right here in BC! But we need your help to collect all the plastic packaging supplied to residents!
