Recycle Depot

Beyond the Blue Box: Recycling at Britannia

Every third Saturday of the month, Britannia Centre sponsors a plastics recycling depot located in the back parking lot at Britannia, where recyclers can dispose of the plastic items the City of Vancouver can’t take. Pacific Mobile Depots (PMD), based in Victoria, collects plastics and other materials, then sells them to small BC factories to repurpose:


For a small price, you can get rid of plastic bags in your cupboards, broken plastic toys in the basement, and a host of other items such as styrofoam, foil-lined materials, and metal objects. So bring your plastics/metals/solid foam, and they will get a new purpose in life. What’s not to like? Proceeds go to PMD and Britannia Centre.
