The City of Revelstoke will start its curbside recycling program on Jan. 3, 2012. City officials have posted up the pick-up schedule, area maps and detailed recycling instruction on their website. See below for links to those documents.

Here area few details on the program. For all the details, please see the links below.

– Recycling will be every second week on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays, depending on where you live.

– There is no rotation of recycling days due to holidays.

– Recycling must be placed in clear blue plastic bags, which are available at local grocery stores.

– You are allowed to recycle as many bags as you want each week, provided they are under 22 pounds each.

– The existing bins at the Revelstoke Bottle Depot will remain in operation as is. Residents are encouraged to continue recycling all containers that have deposits there.

– Starting Jan. 1, any material that is recyclable will not be accepted in your garbage bags.

– Homes that currently receive curbside garbage pickup are included in the program. Those that don’t are asked to continue recycling as they do now.
