There are also over 600 yellow bin recycling bins out across the East Kootenay for the collection of paper, cardboard, tin cans and plastics #1-#6 (no styrofoam).
In addition, there are a number of provincial recycling programs, known as Provincial Extended Producer Programs.
To learn more about our recycling programs, the provincial extended producer programs (like oil, tires, batteries and electronics), or to get the hours of operation for specific transfer stations or landfills, visit the links on the left or engage.rdek.bc.ca/recycle and download the latest recycling guides, ask how to recycle something in the FAQ section or get info on all the items that can go to a Recycle BC Depot.
You can also visit: https://www.rcbc.ca/recyclepedia/search to access the provincial recycling database and search for recycling locations near you.
Locations in the RDEK that accept yard and garden waste include the Cranbrook, Kimberley, Elkford, Fernie, Sparwood, Canal Flats, Tie Lake, and Wasa Transfer Stations, as well as the Columbia Valley Landfill. This service is free and available to all residents within the RDEK.
