Source separation bins now installed at all TNRD waste facility sites

The Thompson-Nicola Regional District (TNRD) has finished completing the changes related to the disposal of recyclables at all of its solid waste facilities.

Recyclable materials will now have to be separated into six different categories at all solid waste facilities in the TNRD.

Residents visiting these sites will be asked to separate their recyclables and dispose of them in appropriate bins.

The six categories are:

1. Paper and cardboard

2. Containers (plastic, metal and paper)

3. Plastic bags and overwrap

4. White foam packaging

5. Coloured foam packaging

6. Glass bottles and jars

The changes are a result of the agreement the TNRD has entered into with Recycle BC, the provincial stewardship program. To conform to Recycle BC’s standards, all TNRD solid waste facilities must move to source separated recycling.

Source separation of recyclables only applies to residents who use TNRD Eco-Depots and Transfer Stations and does not apply to those who have curbside collection.

Residents should check with their curbside collection provider if they have questions about what goes in their carts.
