Starting Nov. 29, the Regional District of Kitimat Stikine (RDKS) is moving to bag free recycling and residents will be required to place their clean recyclable materials directly into their bin, which must be a secure, lidded collection container.
Recycling collection is going bag-free to help reduce single-use plastics and harmonize service delivery with the City of Terrace & Recycle BC Stewardship program,” said Erin Blaney, RDKS Solid Waste Manager.
In a statement issued Tuesday, Nov. 16, RDKS said they have been working towards integrating its curbside collection Recycle BC’s existing program to reduce costs to taxpayers.
“There is no limit on the amount of recycling you may set out, and clear bags may still be used for additional materials when you have more than a bin-full, ” said Blaney in the statement.
The Regional District services areas around the City of Terrace including North Terrace, New Remo, Old Remo, Jackpine Flats, Copperside, Usk and Thornhill.
