Service Note: Due to COVID-19, many depots are limiting the number of visitors allowed inside, instituting traffic flow measures and requesting people maintain appropriate social distances during interactions to ensure they are complying with provincial orders. Thank you for being patient with staff and respecting the policies they have implemented. Please check current depot hours online or find more information at: RecycleBC.ca/Covid19.
Recycle BC has a network of depots across BC where residents can drop off packaging and paper free of charge. Most depots accept all our materials including paper, packaging, cardboard boxes, plastic containers, metal containers, cartons and paper cups, non-deposit glass bottles and jars, foam packaging, plastic bags and overwrap, and other flexible plastic packaging. Please see the map below for depot locations.
Plastic bags and overwrap, foam packaging (e.g. Styrofoam) and non-deposit glass (in communities without separated curbside glass collection) and other flexible plastic packaging can only be returned to a depot for recycling.
Also see our Depot Guide for information on what to bring in.
