Recycling options are expanded

Sidney Bottle Depot grows list of accepted items at Galaran Road location

A collection of the tools and electronics now being accepted at the Sidney Bottle Depot after a recent rennovation.

SIDNEY — The Sidney Bottle Dept on Galaran Road has expanded recently and continues to grow to better serve their customers.

Its renovation — which is ongoing and will conclude around mid-November — has included some new programs, new sorting areas, more parking and the depot itself will be able to accept more recyclables.

As of July 1, 2012, the depot started taking small appliances — sewing machines, exercise machines, sport and leisure devices and electric power tools, at no charge.

A full list of what can be taken by the Sidney Bottle Depot can be found at www.islandreturnit.com, under the small appliances menu.

As well, the depot can now accept electronic toys. From trains and remote control vehicles to electronic plush toys and video gaming consoles, the depot can take them and will transport them to Genesis Recycling in Langley, B.C.

Once there, the toys are melted down for their various metals, plastics and more, sorted, then re-used in various manufacturing processes.

The Sidney Bottle Depot is open Monday to Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and is located at #5-10025 Galaran Rd. in the industrial park.

For more, call 250-655-4878.
