Effective Monday, November 22, Recycle BC has suspended collection of all glass and foam packaging (white and colored) until further notice from Recycle BC Depots, including Golden stations.

The suspension is due to unprecedented flooding and resulting highway closures in British Columbia.

The public is requested to keep these documents until collection resumes. ??

This includes the Golden Bottle Depot, Golden Landfill and the new Kicking Horse satellite depot.

The collection of other packaging and curbside recycling in Golden is not affected at this time. ??

Currently, Recycle BC will continue to collect and receive paper, cardboard, containers and flexible plastics – materials that can be baled and stored in receiving facilities more compactly.

There is no timeline for when glass and foam will be accepted again, with Recycle BC indicating that another public update will be released as new information becomes available.
