Curbside Recycling - Notice

As a result of the devastating loss of the Smithers and Area Recycling Society Depot, Recycle BC is working diligently to establish a solution for proper processing of recycling materials for the residents of the Town of Smithers. 

In the interim, the Town will continue with regular scheduled recycling collection, however all collected materials will be unfortunately landfilled until such time as Recycle BC provides an alternate processing facility. 

Residents can help prevent recyclables from going to the landfill by either storing or taking them directly to the Smithers/Telkwa Transfer Station, as they accept sorted recyclable materials.

Residents that are unable to store or take recyclables to the Smithers/Telkwa Transfer Station are asked to continue with their regular recycling regime, with only compliant materials placed in their recycle cart.

We recognize this is not an ideal situation but the Town of Smithers is committed to working with Recycle BC  to ensure a post collection solution is found.

Further questions can be directed to the Works and Operations department at 250-847-1649.
