Summer can be a real challenge for those who pick up your garbage. For those visiting - keep in mind that here on Cortes your garbage is handled by humans, not machines. It gets stinky fast, especially in the heat. Compost what you can; everything needs to be clean.

Four Separate Categories

1. Glass; in a container we can take away – all glass, including refundables

2. Refundable Items; in a container we can take away – includes plastic, aluminum, alcohol, pop, juice and water but not milk cartons (Mixed Recycleables)

3. Mixed Recyclables; in a container we empty - clean, loose and mixed. No soft plastics, Styrofoam, glass, or tissue. See http://recyclinginbc.ca/program/mmbc-materials-list/ for a complete list of acceptable

4. Landfill - one or two clean, securely tied bags weighing less than 10 kg. each
