Recycling Program

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Fraser Valley Regional District goal is to divert 90% of recyclable waste away from landfills by 2025. We are working hard to meet this target and we need your help!

In an effort to stop recyclable material from going to the landfill, the Village of Harrison Hot Springs will supply all eligible households a one-time promotional mixed-use recycling container and a glass recycling container free of charge.

By working together, we can achieve our goal and greatly reduce the amount of waste going to the landfill. Visit RecycleBC.ca for a complete list of resources that will help you manage your recycling.


WHO DOES THIS IMPACT?
This initiative impacts all households who currently receive waste collection service from the Village.


AM I ELIGIBLE FOR FREE CONTAINERS?
If you live in a single detached home or duplex, receive waste collection service from the Village and have not yet received free recycling containers, you are eligible.


HOW DO I GET MY CONTAINERS?
Free recycling containers will be available to be picked up at the Village Office or delivered to your residence. Please complete a Recycling Bin Application form to order your containers. Forms should be completed by July 31, 2022.


WHAT IF I MISS THE APPLICATION DEADLINE?

IS RECYCLING LIMITED TO THIS CONTAINER?
No, recycling is unlimited and you may continue to use other containers if needed. Blue bags are not allowed.


CAN I PURCHASE ADDITIONAL CONTAINERS?
