Recycling is an important part of minimizing the amount of waste disposed at regional landfills. Recycling services provided by the North Coast Regional District (NCRD) are funded through taxation and the sale of recyclables. The NCRD Depot, serving the North Coast and Haida Gwaii, is located in Prince Rupert. For Haida Gwaii, the main recycling depot is in the Village of Queen Charlotte.

Please take a moment to review the North Coast Regional District's New Residential Recycling Guidelines.

You can also return beverage containers to most retailers. Retailers often limit the number of containers accepted for refund. Empty milk, cream and milk substitute containers (plastic/cartons/jugs) may be recycled at your local bottle depots. Unlike other beverage bottles and cans, there's no deposit paid when you purchase milk or milk substitute products, so there's no refund when you Return-it.

Computer and Electronics Recycling

The Return-It Electronics program began in 2007. There’s no charge for the recycling of electronics, computers, monitors, printers, fax machines and television’s dropped off at the Regional Recycling Depot. On Haida Gwaii, the annual Electronics Roundup takes place in the fall at both ends of the Islands. Watch the newspaper for notice.

Batteries/Cell Phones

Cell phones can be returned to the place of purchase or at most electronic retailers. For a current list click here. The Regional Recycling Depot also accepts them.
