Glass Depots 

Both, Britannia Beach and Furry Creek, communities have a drop-off location for clean glass jars and bottles.

Britannia Beach Glass Depot Pilot Project Extended to Year- Round Program

The Squamish-Lillooet Regional District (SLRD) is pleased to announce that the Britannia Beach glass depot pilot project has been extended.

The project initially ran from June 30 until September 28, 2021 as a pilot project, and was so successful that it will continue.

This is a great opportunity for the community to divert some of the glass waste currently going to the landfill.

Glass accounts for 8.2% per cent of the Britannia Beach waste currently being sent to the landfill (compared to 3.5% of the waste coming from Squamish).

Please note the following;

  • Glass containers must be clean
  • Totes/ bins should only be used for glass bottles and jars
  • No glassware, window glass, or mirrors (whether broken or whole) permitted
  • Area around the bins should be kept clean and litter free
  • Please remove the lids (these can go in the blue bin)
