Where Can I Recycle?

Central Subregion (Nelson, Kaslo, Salmo, Electoral Areas D, E, F & G)

As of October 19, 2015 residents in the Central Sub-region no longer need to use blue bags to deposit recycleables.  All materials (except glass) is to be deposited directly into the slots on co-mingled recycling bins.  Separate bins are designated at depots for glass only.  A cardboard-only bin will remain at the Lakeside Drive Depot in Nelson.

Curbside recycling programs are available in Nelson and Kaslo. It is important to note that these curbside pick up programs are operated under RecycleBC, not the RDCK so the list of acceptable materials is different.  For more information visit RecycleBC or contact the City of Nelson at (250) 352-8238 and the Village of Kaslo at (250) 353-2311 for more information.

East Subregion (Creston, Electoral Areas A, B & C)

Residents in the East Subregion have drop-off recycling depots. All materials (except glass) can be deposited co-mingled in the recycling bins provided. Separate bins are designated at depots for glass only.

West Subregion (Castlegar, Nakusp, New Denver, Silverton, Slocan, Areas H, I, J & K)

Residents within the Village of Nakusp, City of Castlegar and portions of Electoral Areas H, I and J have curbside recycling programs.  Visit RecycleBC.

For more information contact the Village of Nakusp at (250) 265-3689, the City of Castlegar at (250) 365-7227 and for Electoral Areas H, I and J contact Alpine Disposal at 1-866-596-5444.

Residents outside of the curbside collection area in the West Subregion use drop-off recycling depots. All materials (except glass) can be deposited co-mingled in the recycling bins provided. Separate bins are designated at depots for glass only.
