[ARCHIVED] Way to Recycle, Cowichan!

Refundables Appreciation

Way to recycle, Cowichan!  

We wanted to commend you for putting our community first by donating your refundable beverage containers at CVRD Recycling Centres.

Through the CVRD’s partnership with Island Return It, all proceeds from refundables are donated to a local charity each month. In 2021, this resulted in over $68,000 going toward local non-profit groups with $10,608 from Meade Creek, $46,645 from Bings Creek, and $10,791 from Peerless Road Recycling Centres. Donations were distributed among the following organizations:

  • WildSafeBC
  • Big Brothers & Big Sisters
  • Cowichan Search and Rescue
  • Cowichan Family Life
  • Cowichan Bay Estuary Centre
  • BC SPCA Cowichan & District Branch
  • Cowichan Valley Regional Visitor Centre
  • Duncan Historical Firefighter Society
  • Cowichan District Hospital Foundation
  • Handmade Hugs
  • Honeymoon bay Firefighter Society
  • Cowichan Family Caregivers Support Society

Help care for our community and support local initiatives by recycling your refundable beverage containers at Bings Creek, Meade Creek, and Peerless Road Recycling Centres or Island Return It donation bins.
