Recycling

Residents are encouraged to use the recycling programs provided to them by RecycleBC as a first choice option for their recyclables.
 

RDNO Recycling Drop Centres

The RDNO provides Recycling Drop Centres at all six of our Recycling and Disposal Facilities (RDFs) and Transfer Stations throughout the North Okanagan for both residents and businesses.

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. 

It is important to note that the RDNO Recycling Drop Centres are sepeate from any Residential Recycling Programs and Depot programs provided by Recycle BC.

These Drop Centres are managed by the RDNO, and are funded by RDF recycling and disposal fees.
