There are two streams of recycling collection services in Kaslo. One is for residents only (MMBC curbside) and the other is for Institutional Commercial entities (RDCK Recycling Depot).
EFFECTIVE JUNE 6 - AUGUST 29th 2017.
Curbside recycling will be increased to EVERY Tuesday to accommodate a busier summer season.
What is Multi-Material BC?
Starting May 19, 2014, businesses that supply packaging and printed paper to BC residents are responsible for collecting and managing these materials so they can be recycled. Multi-Material BC (MMBC), a non-profit organization working on behalf of these businesses, will be responsible for residential recycling programs in many areas across BC, either directly or by working with local governments, First Nations, private companies and not-for-profit organizations. The Village holds a five year agreement with MMBC to provide recycling services.
VILLAGE OF KASLO GUIDE TO CURBSIDE RECYCLING
- The regularly-scheduled service will provide residents with curbside pickup of printed paper and some packaging materials. Collection providers are unable to pick up contaminated bags. Please ensure your recyclables are washed and clean and in a clear blue bag. See below for what we will pick up. Recyclables must be clean – or your bag will not be picked up.

Your RDCK Recycling Depot is not an MMBC depot and is not currently integrated with your free curbside service. You are encouraged to commit as much of your residential recycling to the curbside program as possible to boost municipal volumes. For a detailed list of what materials your local depot can accept, go to www.rdck.ca and check out the Recycling Page. MMBC curbside does not collect from commercial properties. Please consult the RDCK directly with questions or make private arrangements with respect to commercial recycling needs.
