Abbotsford Community Services
Service Provider in Abbotsford, British Columbia
Abbotsford Community Services Recycling Program provides recycling services for the City of Abbotsford and the District of Mission. The Recycling Program is a part of Abbotsford Community Services. The facilities process blue bag and drop off recyclables from both Abbotsford and Mission. These recyclables are placed onto a conveyor belt and hand sorted by Abbotsford Community Services employees into different types of materials. Once sorted, the recyclables are either baled or loaded loose into shipping containers and sent to local markets for processing. Approximately 17,000 metric tonnes of recyclables are diverted from the landfill each year. Abbotsford Community Services Recycling Program offers an extensive public awareness program. This includes both school and community education in our newly constructed Recycling Education Centre and in the onsite Compost Demonstration Garden which was built in partnership with the Fraser Valley Regional District. The Recycling Education Program also attends many community events like Agrifair, the Berry Festival and the Mission Candlelight Parade promoting both recycling and environmental awareness.
