Where Can I Recycle?

Central Subregion (Nelson, Kaslo, Salmo, Electoral Areas D, E, F & G)

All materials (except glass) are to be deposited directly into the slots in co-mingled recycling bins.  Separate bins are designated at depots for glass only.  A cardboard-only bin is at the Lakeside Drive Depot in Nelson.

Curbside recycling programs are available in Nelson and Kaslo. It is important to note that these curbside pick up programs are operated under Recycle BC, not the RDCK so the list of acceptable materials is different.

For more information on the curbside recycling programs contact:
