JULY 1, 2020 – CHANGES TO THE HOUSEHOLD PACKAGING AND PAPER RECYCLING COLLECTION SERVICE IN REVESTOKE

Recycle BC is now using a multi-stream program using reusable boxes and bags, no longer using single stream (clear blue bag) for curbside recycling.

The new program:

  • Helps reduce contamination so more materials are successfully recycled
  • Saves money on bags — no more need to buy single-use bags for recycling, as reusable boxes and bags have been provided

Details on changes:

  • New collector: SCV Contractors
  • Reusable box and bag: Provided by Recycle BC, delivered to homes in June by SCV Contractors

Please use your blue box for mixed containers, including hard plastic packaging, metal cans, aluminum foil wrap and containers, cartons, spiral wound cans and lids (frozen juice concentrate, chips, etc.), hot and cold beverage cups (coffee cups, slushy drinks), and empty aerosol cans. Please use your yellow bag for paper products, including printed paper (flyers, magazines, envelopes, etc.), paper packaging that held dry products (shoes, crackers, eggs, etc.), and cardboard. You can also search what can be recycled online (RecycleBC.ca/Materials) or using the Recycle BC mobile app for information on if and how specific materials should be included in your recycling.

Recycling with blue boxes/yellow bags has been used across BC for many years and contributed to successful recycling programs with high resident participation and recycling rates, and less contamination than unsorted recycling collection programs. By using reusable recycling box/bag rather than single-use plastic bags, we are applying the first of the 3 Rs: reduction of waste. Further, you will no longer need to buy bags.

Please contact Recycle BC’s contracted collector, SCV Contractors, to report missed collection, or any other customer service issues by calling 1-888-887-2870 or via email at admin@scvwaste.ca.
