Curbside recycling service will continue as scheduled at this time.

Help keep our collection crews, sorting staff, residents and communities safe. Products like tissues, disinfecting wipes, face masks and rubber gloves are not part of the provincial recycling program and should not be put in your blue bins or bags. These items should be put in your garbage in a sealed (tied shut) bag and put in your garbage bin. For more information, please visit Recycle BC. Residents can also help further by wiping down collection containers after each pick up to keep them clean.

To ensure that your recycling is collected, please only include accepted items in your curbside containers.
