The HOLM Stretch December 23, 2022
The holidays are here,
and along with the parties, dinners, and gifting traditions, often comes an increase in household waste. Managing your household waste over the holiday season doesn’t have to be a chore. It can be as easy as 1, 2, 3.
1) Recycle first
Place wrapping paper, gift bags, gift boxes, beverage containers, cardboard, glass, and plastic materials in your blue and grey RecycleBC bins for curbside collection.
2) Divert organic waste
Use your green-lidded organics cart for all food scraps and other accepted compostable materials, such as soiled papers like napkins or paper towels. Wrap food scraps in a newspaper or a BPI-certified compostable bag to reduce the risk of material freezing to the inside of the cart.
- Live Christmas trees cannot go in the organics cart. Following the holiday season, you can drop off your live tree, free of charge, at the drop zone on the former Kin Race Track lands (beside Kal Tire Place) to be chipped and recycled. Trees can be dropped off until January 16.
- Plastic materials are not accepted in organics carts. Please recycle your plastic.
3) Use your garbage cart last
Put any remaining non-recyclable and non-compostable materials in your garbage cart. This may include certain kinds of gift wrapping, damaged decorations, or adhesive material.
When items are properly sorted into recycling, organics, and garbage, it helps you better manage your household waste for pickup. Easy as 1, 2, 3.
