Recycle BC Resumes Collection of Glass Recycling

The collection of glass recycling at all of the Regional District of East Kootenay’s Recycle BC Depots has resumed effective immediately.

“With transportation challenges across the province starting to ease and our primary end market for glass back up and running, we are happy to announce that our Recycle BC Depots can resume collecting glass recyclables,” says Kevin Paterson, RDEK Manager of Environmental Services.

The collection of foam packaging (white and coloured Styrofoam) remains suspended across the province including the East Kootenay. The RDEK is asking residents to not take foam packaging to any of the region’s Recycle BC Depots (Invermere, Kimberley, Cranbrook, Fernie, Sparwood and Elkford transfer stations) at this time.

“If possible, please hang on to your foam packaging until we can once again begin collection of these materials resumes,” adds Paterson.

The RDEK thanks the public for their understanding and patience during this time.
