Proceed to

Recycle safely.

Coinciding with BC’s Restart Plan, many of our public Return Collection Facilities (RCFs) have re-opened and are accepting materials again. Before your first visit, please be prepared to:

  • Call ahead to confirm operating hours
  • Follow instructions from depot staff
  • Practice physical distancing at all times
  • Wait in line as locations are operating with capacity restrictions
  • Be patient and kind to staff and other people

Some RCFs are still operating on reduced hours or remain closed. If your closest facility is closed, please do the right thing. Store your materials safely using the tips provided below and return them once the RCF has re-opened.

Please DO NOT VISIT any of our facilities if you have been diagnosed with COVID-19, are experiencing any symptoms or have been in contact with anyone that has the virus.

Working together we can flatten the curve.
