Village of Masset Recycling Depot Opening in August


In 2020, the North Coast Regional District (NCRD) began planning activities to minimize health and safety risk to our employees and the public while providing recycling services on Haida Gwaii. As part of this planning the NCRD worked collaboratively with the Province of B.C., WorkSafeBC, stewardship program providers and our employees to carefully review and modify the recycling operations of the Island Solid Waste department to ensure compliance with provincial health orders and stewardship programs, and to ensure continued safety of our employees and the general public.

In 2020, the following recycling services were reorganized and remain in effect today:

  • Village of Queen Charlotte Recycling Depot: The depot is open Sunday, Monday and Tuesday of each week from 10:00AM to 4:00PM.
  • Port Clements Landfill & Recycling Depot: The depot is open Tuesday – Saturday of each week from 9:00AM to 3:00PM.
  • The recycling transfer stations on Haida Gwaii remain closed.

In addition to the above facility locations, the NCRD will be opening a new recycling facility location in the Village of Masset, which will provide consistent and reliable access to recycling services to NCRD residents in northern Haida Gwaii. The facility is anticipated to open August 2021.

The Masset Recycling depot will be located at 1730 Hodges Road in the Greater Massett Development Corporation building. The NCRD will be adjusting hours of the Masset Transfer Station to accommodate recycling depot hours within current staffing levels. The Masset depot hours will be communicated to the public closer to August 2021. Please check back on our website for additional details.

The NCRD is also undertaking a comprehensive review of waste management services in the NCRD through the regional Solid Waste Management Plan update project. The NCRD encourages regional stakeholders and members of the public that wish to be involved in this planning process to please visit our website for further information on how to get involved.
