The Regional District Waste Reduction Office is again hosting a series of pop-up recycling depots for residents at a central location in Lake Country. They’re an opportunity for residents to drop off depot only recyclables such as Styrofoam, glass and soft plastics in their own communities.

Seven pop-up depots are slated for the fourth Saturday of each month - March through September.

The pop-up depots will give Lake Country residents an opportunity to easily recycle their depot only items, things like foam packaging, plastic bags and overwrap, glass bottles and jars, and other flexible plastic packaging (such as crinkly wrappers, stand up pouches and zipper bags). Electronics will also be accepted at these pop-up events. The pop-up depots are for residential recycling only, not commercial.

Lake Country pop-ups will take place on the fourth Saturday of the month, 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the parking lot at the corner of Main Street and Hill Road (3165 Hill Road) across from the former Kangaroo farm. Staff will be on hand to answer any recycling questions.

Rae Stewart, Waste Reduction facilitator says “Our aim is to make recycling more accessible to our residents, connect with as many residents as possible on a one-on-one basis, increase recycling awareness, and keep recyclable material out of the landfill. As the name suggests, pop-up events are by nature temporary, held in unique spaces, and last for a few hours. The feedback we received from residents attending these events last year was most positive, that they were happy to have additional recycling options accessible right in their own neighborhoods.”
