We appreciate it's not easy for you - imagine what it's like for us, your curt(eous) curbside collectors, plucking out the non-complying items! Please, please cogitate and comply ...

Pack each group of these items separately:

Landfill - one or two clean, securely tied bags weighing less than 10 kg. each. If you use a can, keep it clean and dry and covered with an easily removed waterproof lid. After emptying we tip the can so we know it’s empty when we pass by it again, and to keep the water out.

Glass – we’ll take the container; ensure all is non-refundable.

MMBC - place clean, loose and mixed in a blue recycling bin or bucket that we leave behind. No soft plastics, Styrofoam, glass, tissue or refundable items please. See http://recyclinginbc.ca/program/mmbc-materials-list/ for a complete list of acceptable items.

Refundable Items – we’ll take the container; includes all alcohol, pop, juice and water containers but not milk cartons (MMBC).

Your collectors – Ian, Gordy, Henry, Elijah and Margaret. Questions? Call Henry 935-6940
