Change in Recycling Collection in Hope
Please be advised that residents no longer have to purchase Blue Bags for recyclables in the District of Hope.
Instead, like yard waste, residents can put these in a reusable covered container with a District provided recycling sticker for that use. The District, collectors and landfills across the Province are moving to reduce waste being disposed and not recycled. Blue bags are not recyclable and therefore will no longer be accepted after October 31st.
Not using blue bags will save residents money and help protect our environment.
Also, in an effort to better transport loose recycling and avoid any confusion or concern, separate recycling trucks will join the collection routes.
Further information will be provided to each household in the District by First Class Waste. We appreciate everyone’s efforts to reduce the amount of waste going into landfills.
