This December will see the opening of a new recycle depot in Quesnel, allowing residents to recycle a wider range of products.
Coinciding with the opening of the new depot, existing depots at West Park Mall, Maple Park Mall, Sani-Loop, and the Quesnel Landfill are slated to close on November 29th.
The new recycling depot, located near the Quesnel Landfill on Carson Pit Road, will be a controlled site with an attendant on hand.
Recycle BC decided to open the new depot and close the old ones in response to continued high levels of contamination making recycled material from the sites non-marketable.
The new depot will be open Tuesday to Sunday from 8 am to 6 pm.
There will be no changes to existing curbside pick up.
