Service Note: Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, some collectors may be closed. Please contact the collection site before going to confirm their current hours of operation or find more information on our service update page: 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.
