Recycle BC Update: New Depot in Squamish Delays

Recycle BC has posted the following news release to their website:

We have an important update for Squamish residents regarding the new depot collection site for residential packaging and paper. Squamish DOX was looking forward to the opening of the new depot site, but unfortunately operational delays have persisted, leaving the official opening date unclear. The team understands the urgency of the situation and is committed to resolving these issues and starting operations as soon as possible.   

The last day of operation for the existing GFL depot on Queen’s Way is June 14, 2024.  

While we navigate these delays, residents can continue to use the curbside and multi-family collection programs for most residential packaging and paper products, such as newspaper, magazines, cardboard, steel and aluminum cans, rigid plastic containers, soup cartons, and paper beverage cups and lids.   

For materials not accepted curbside (glass, flexible plastics and foam), here are your options:  

We want to express our gratitude to all Squamish residents for your commitment to recycling and for your patience during this time. The team is dedicated to opening the new site as soon as possible and will keep you updated on our progress.
