Penticton extends recycling for holidays

Penticton holiday garbage and recycling collection

The City of Penticton is offering an additional week of recycling collection over the holiday season, Dec. 24 to 28.

“Feedback we have received from residents indicates that there is a need to have an additional week of recycling collection during the holiday season,” said David Kassian, community sustainability co-ordinator. “We want to offer this service for Penticton residents receiving curbside recycling collection.”

There is often extra recycling during this time while people prepare meals and gifts, and the city would like to capture these extra materials. Only materials placed within your city-issued recycle cart will be collected.

If you have extra garbage or recycling that will not fit in the designated cart, you can purchase tag-a-bag stickers from city Hall, city yards, or the Community Centre. Placing one tag-a-bag sticker on one extra bag of material will ensure that it is collected.

When placing your recycling out for collection, remember to clean and rinse all containers. Containers with food residue remaining cannot be recycled and present a health hazard to workers who handle the material. Please also remember that if it is a product that has an electrical cord or that takes batteries, it cannot be placed in your recycle cart.
