Residents are encouraged to use the curbside and depot recycling programs provided to them by RecycleBC as a first choice option for their packaging and printed paper. 

For more information on this program please contact Recycle BC at 778-588-9504 or [email protected].

RDNO Recycling Drop Centres

The RDNO provides Recycling Drop Centres at all six of our facilities throughout the North Okanagan.

Containers are provided at each site for loose, comingled recyclables such as cardboard, newspaper, mixed paper, food grade aluminum, tin and ridgid plastics #1-7. Plastic film and hard covered books are NOT accepted. 

These Drop Centres are managed by the RDNO, and are funded by general RDF tippingl fees. They are not meant to replace Recycling BC depots, or curbside collection services. It is important to note that the RDNO Recycling Drop Centres are separate from any Residential Recycling and Depot programs provided by Recycle BC.

​Residential Curbside Collection

The Residential Recycling Programs in Armstrong, Coldstream, Enderby, Lumby, Vernon, and Electoral Areas “B”, “C”, and parts of “D” and “F” are, also maintained by Recycle BC.
