Garbage, Recycling and Composting

Abbotsford joins the Recycle BC program effective April 3, 2017

Recycle BC is a non-profit organization responsible for residential recycling programs, and provides this service through partnerships with local governments, First Nations, private companies and non-profit organizations. The Recycle BC program is funded by the businesses that supply packaging and printed paper to BC residents, which shifts recycling costs away from municipalities.

Not only will the City be able to improve our recycling service and recycle more items, by joining the Recycle BC program, the City’s recycling services will be funded by producers that supply packaging and printed paper instead of through resident user fees.

This will mean changes to the material that is collected through the curbside collection program, which are now in effect. The links below provide you with more information.
