The Comox Strathcona Waste Management (CSWM) unstaffed recycling depot located at the Canex Retail Store in Comox will close permanently, effective July 1.
Residents without municipal curbside recycling service will have to drop off recyclables at one of the local Return-It depots or at the waste management centre on Bevan Road. These depot facilities are all supported by Recycle BC and accept any materials that are accepted at the closing unstaffed depots, as well as glass, plastic bags, outer wrap and foam packaging.
The unstaffed recycling depot located at the Sportsplex in Campbell River is also closing July 1.
“These unstaffed depots have unfortunately been targets for illegal dumping for years, and just don’t reflect the standard of service that we would like to see with our waste management service,” said Vivian Schau, senior manager of CSWM Services. “We want to uphold a great standard for recycling in our area, and luckily there are a number of Recycle BC supported options in our communities that allows us to recycle more items, in an effective and responsible manner with full transparency.”
