Items must be placed at the curbside by 7 am. To avoid recycling box contamination and to see what is and isn’t accepted in your blue box, follow these guidelines for curbside recycling.
As the curbside Blue Box Recycling Program is operated on a regional basis by the CRD, the cost of this service is not billed directly by the Town. Rather, curbside recycling costs are included in the Regional District taxes on your property tax bill.
