Residents in New Westminster are now able to take their packaging and printed paper recyclables to Queensborough Landing Return-It, without charge, as it joins the Multi-Material BC (MMBC) network of more than 200 depots.

Queensborough Landing Return-It, located at Unit A – 409 Boyne Street in New Westminster, accepts all materials in MMBC’s residential packaging and printed paper recycling program, including non-deposit glass bottles and jars, plastic bags and plastic foam packaging, along with curbside recycling materials such as newsprint, cardboard, metal containers, plastic containers, spiral wound cans and paper packaging that held liquid when sold, such as coffee cups and soup cartons. The depot accepts materials dropped off during regular business hours, Monday to Saturday, 9am-6pm and Sunday and holidays, 10am-4pm.

“One of our goals with the MMBC recycling program is to help residents recycle more,” said Allen Langdon, Managing Director of MMBC. “It is important to us that all communities that are part of the MMBC program have access to both depot and curbside recycling services. We want to ensure all materials that can be responsibly recycled are, including materials not accepted in curbside recycling like plastic bags, foam packaging and glass.”
