Five years ago, Recycle BC began operation as the province’s recycling program responsible for residential packaging and paper product. In that time, Recycle BC has expanded their service area throughout the Province, increased the number of depots residents have access to, and set an example of how extended producer responsibility (EPR) can improve recycling systems.
In February of 2019 the District of Hope, like many other municipalities, became a member of the Recycle BC program. This has resulted in some changes to recycling collection in Hope.
Roadside collection schedule for the District of Hope:
Residents living east and north of the Coquihalla River (Thacker Mountain, Kawkawa Lake, East Kawkawa Lake and Othello) will see no change in collection day - Tuesday.
