[ARCHIVED] Scrap Metal Contamination in Curbside Recycling


Hey Cowichan,

Do you know how to dispose of scrap metal products?

The curbside recycling program only accepts clean metal packaging items such as food cans, foil, disposable pie plates, and cooking, cleaning, or body care aerosols. 

Scrap metal products, as seen in the picture, should be taken to CVRD Recycling Centres for proper sorting and recycling.
