Thorsen Creek Recycling Depot accepts more than 30 different categories of items for recycling and is a drop off facility for most provincial Product Stewardship Programs.

Our Recycling Depot is staffed by a friendly recycling attendant who is available to assist customers.

All recyclables are shipped to the lower mainland for processing. We currently ship approximately one (1) semi-trailer load per month.

Our recycling depot accepts all types of beverage containers but does not issue any deposit refunds. All deposit containers are donated to a variety of local non-profit organizations.
