The Campbell River Bottle Depot (CRBD) on Willow St, at the end of 16 avenue West, is happy is expanding its service.
As July 1 2012, the small appliances program extended its list. Now they are accepting sewing machines, exercise machines, sport and leisure devices and electronic power tools, at no charge. For a full list visit: www.islandreturnit.com under small appliances menu. No maximum.
Also adding to the existing recycling programs like beverage and milk containers, electronics, small appliances, paint can and aerosol containers, the CRBD is now an electronic toys collection depot.
Any electronic or electrical toys including trains, electronic plush toys, car racing sets, cars and trucks with remote controls or ride on toys, video gaming equipment and consoles can be drop off at the Campbell River Bottle Depot at no charge during business hours. After an electronic toy is brought to the depot, it will be transported to Genesis Recycling, a local processor in Langley, BC and separated into different materials which are then recycled. Metals will be smelted down and recycled into other metal products, while plastics will be sorted and sold or reused in various manufacturing processes. For more information, visit: www.islandreturnit.com or call (250) 287-4224. The depot is open Monday-Saturday 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. and on Sunday 10-4 p.m.
