Multi-Materials BC (MMBC) Contract for Recycling Services

In May, the City will begin a contract with Multi-Materials BC (MMBC) for recycling services. This means the City will receive an estimated $28,000 in 2014 and $45,000 in 2015 from MMBC for picking up your recycling.

Council is considering utilizing this estimated $38 per household annually ($24 in 2014) to expanding the trial yard waste and glass pick up service to provide it to all single family homes while leaving the current garbage and recycling fee at the same amount of $136.00 per year.

Under the yard waste and glass program, a contractor will pick up recyclable glass and yard waste once per month from each household. Eligible items are:

  • Up to 10 large compostable garbage bags;
  • Up to 2 bundles of sticks
  • Unlimited loose glass in clean bins.
