Kaslo Recycling Depot Relocated to Kaslo Transfer Station

The Kaslo Recycling Depot has been relocated from Village of Kaslo’s Public Works Yard to the Kaslo Transfer Station as of October 19, 2015. The relocation of the depot was requested by the Village of Kaslo and the RDCK complied with their request.

In 2014, the Village of Kaslo introduced curbside collection service for recyclables with funding through the Multi-Material British Columbia (MMBC) product stewardship program. Through MMBC, the producers of packaging and printed paper assume the cost of recycling the materials they produce. Because the RDCK was not included in the MMBC program, RDCK depot recycling programs continue to be funded through local taxation. Increased use of the curbside program funded by producers will result in savings for all residents of the RDCK Central Resource Recovery Service Area.

“The Directors for this service area will continue to pressure Multi-Material British Columbia and the provincial government to fulfill their obligation to provide producer-funded depot recycling services for residents throughout the RDCK, as they do for other BC Communities,” said Tom Newell, Chair of the RDCK’s Central Resource Recovery Committee. “Once the RDCK is satisfied that the level of service provided by MMBC is adequate, the RDCK property tax funded recycling program will be reduced or eliminated.”

Rural Kaslo residents who do not receive curbside service will be able to deposit their recyclables at the same time and location that they dispose of their garbage. The recycling depots will be open during Transfer Station operating hours.
