Changes coming to recycling program

Changes coming to recycling system in Revelstoke, including new list of what recyclables go where and elimination of annual pickup fee.

Changes are coming to the recycling system in Revelstoke, including a new list of what recyclables go where and an elimination of the annual curbside pickup fee.

The changes are occurring as Multi-Material BC, an industry stewardship group, takes over the province’s recycling system.

The first change is in regards to what goes can into the blue bags for curbside pickup. The list includes paper packaging and printed paper; and aluminum, steel, plastic and paper containers.

Plastic bags and other film plastic, glass and plastic foam packaging must be sorted and brought to the recycling bins outside the Bottle Depot in the industrial park.

The other significant change is that the recycling bins will only be open during Bottle Depot hours — Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The good news is the cost of the program is being born by MMBC, meaning the annual fee for curbside pickup will be eliminated. Pickup will still take place on the same schedule as in the past and will be done by Bresco.

The changes take effect at the start of 2015. Full details can be seen at recycling.bc.ca/revelstoke.
