Where can I recycle my plastic or paper fibre plant pots and trays? (With Bonus Video)

Plastic and paper-fibre pots and trays, including those for seedlings, vegetable plants, and bedding plants are included in a province-wide recycling program managed by Recycle BC. Many residents who recieve curbside recycling collection through their city or municipality can put these containers into their household recycling, provided that they are free of soil or plant material, and are no larger than 25 litres. Residents who do not fall under this jurisdiction can also take these pots and trays to a local recycling depot for free drop-off.

To find a list of local depots that accept plant pots for recycling, contact the RCBC Recycling Hotline.
