Leafs depot increases recycling options

The team at the Nelson Leafs Recycling Centre are happy to be part of a new small appliance program

The team at the Nelson Leafs Recycling Centre located at 120 Silica Street are happy to be part of a new and exciting small appliance program called Unplugged which was just launched this month.

With the increased demand, now clients can recycle in an appropriate manner. The depot is always looking at new ways to ensure that this need is being met.

“New programs such as this is very exciting for our depot,” says centre manager Beverley Dawe.

Lots of other new recycling ideas are also being looked at and will be coming in the future.

For now you can visit the Nelson Leafs Recycling Centre to drop off your e-waste, small appliances, milk containers, and their largest recycling stream, beverage containers, anytime Monday to Saturday 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“This is a real benefit to your local Nelson Leafs hockey team to be able to handle such programs as milk, e-waste and small appliances as we get paid a handling fee for taking care of these programs and while promoting recycling the right way by doing this through the right avenue stream and keeping these products out of our landfills,” says Dawe.
