Oct 1, 2014 - Westcoast Recycling: Residential Update

As of October 1st, residential recycling has been updated to reflect extensive community feedback and enhance the effectiveness of the recycling system. Sonbird Refuse and Recycling, the Raincoast Education Society and the Districts of Tofino and Ucluelet have lobbied hard on behalf of our communities to establish Multi-Materials BC (MMBC) depots in Tofino and Ucluelet. With MMBC depot status, we are now able to offer the following services:

• Drop-off of all residential recycling is now accepted free-of-charge.

• Tofino and Ucluelet depots are now accepting (Drop-off only) clean glass and clean styrofoam.

• New depot hours:

    Tofino:  
    Monday, Wednesday, Friday 10am – 4pm
    Saturday 10am – 2pm

    Ucluelet:
    Tuesday, Thursday 10am – 4pm
    Saturday 10am – 2pm

Please keep in mind that the accepted materials for curbside recycling pickup have not changed. For a detailed list of accepted materials, please see westcoastrecycling.ca.

We are very proud to serve our communities and to work to continually improve the recycling system in our region. However, we need your help to ensure that this system is successful. Please do your part by ensuring all recyclables are clean. Thank you very much.
