Where can I recycle my empty bags and plastic containers for garden chemicals and fertilizers?

Plastic pails or buckets for fertilizers, road salt, soil, and other garden products are included in a provincial recycling program through Recycle BC. Once these containers are empty and rinsed, they can be placed in many curbside recycling programs across the province. This includes all containers that are 25 litres or less in size.

Bags for these products are also included in the Recycle BC recycling program. They cannot be placed in the curbside recycling bin, but can be dropped off at a number of recycling depots across the province for free. For more information on these programs, including a list of local depots, visit the Recycle BC website or contact the RCBC Recycling Hotline.
