Event Description

Drop off your clean plastics at our monthly recycling depot. Pre-sort your plastics and arrive no later than 6:45. (Please note that we can't accept anything before 6 pm.)

Kits Community Centre, 2690 Larch Ave. The depot will be held in the patio outside of the south entrance to the community centre, immediately north of 12th and Larch.

Cost: Most of the year it's free, but the 2016 Neighbourhood Small Grant $ can't spill over, so we have to collect $ this time to cover pickup costs. Requested donation is $7/full large 30-50 gallon bag or $4/1/2 30-50 gallon bag, etc. (Pending a successful grant application) free depots will resume in April or May.

RSVP: kitsrecycling@villagevancouver.ca or here.

Recycling categories:
1. Soft plastics, i.e. any plastic bags, wraps or packaging,
2. Hard plastics, i.e. any hard plastics (#1 thru #7, but w/metal parts etc. removed),
3. Styrofoam blocks,
4. Styrofoam containers, i.e. cups and food take out containers,
5. Styrofoam peanuts and other "soft" styrofoam,
6. Wax lined beverage containers,
7. Foil lined bags (packaging and wraps).

If you're driving, it's best to park either on 12th Ave eastbound or on Larch south of 12th.

Next depot: April 13th.

WANT TO HELP? We're looking for one or two volunteers to help for 1 1/2 hours/month, primarily on the evening of the depot (5:45-7:15).

The depot is supported part of the year by a Greenest City Neighbourhood Small Grant from the City of Vancouver and the Vancouver Foundation administered by Kits Neighbourhood House.
