Accepted and not accepted materials:
Both, Britannia Beach and Furry Creek, communities have a drop-off location for clean glass jars and bottles.
The Britannia Beach Glass Depot is a Pilot Project which is being conducted from June 30 to September 28, 2021 and if successful the service will be implemented permanently. This is a great opportunity for the community to divert some of the glass waste it is currently sent to landfill. Glass accounts for 8.2% of the waste currently sent to landfill by the community, compared to 3.5% in Squamish.
Here are a few guidelines to ensure the pilot project is successful:
- Glass containers must be clean – Prevent wildlife attractant.
- The totes/bins should only be used for glass bottles and jars.
- No Glassware, window glass, or mirrors, whether broken or whole.
- The area around the bins should be kept clean and litter free.
- Please remove the lids (these can go in your blue bin).
For locations please contact: email@example.com
The standard size of the recycling and garbage totes is 65 gallons. Larger totes are available by contacting GFL (formerly Carney’s Waste Systems) at 604-892-5604 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Upgrades to larger recycling totes (95 gallons) is paid for by the service; however, upgrades to larger garbage totes will be billed directly by GFL to the customer. Smaller totes (35 gallons) are also available to customers with limited storage space or those with minimal garbage and/or recycling collection requirements.

GFL will repair or replace a damaged tote at their cost during the tote’s next service date. Next day repair or replacement is available at a cost of $65 to the homeowner.
