Garbage & Recycling

In the RDEK, we have a strong focus on recycling.  We have a yellow bin recycling program with over 600 yellow bins out across the East Kootenay for the collection of recyclables.  In addition to the RDEK's yellow bin program, there are a number of provincial recycling programs, known as Provincial Extended Producer Programs.

To learn more about our recycling program, 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 from the menu on the left.
