Garbage Bins and Recycling

The garbage bins are for normal household waste ONLY. Please stop dumping the items listed below. The items in the truck were removed by Brian Lamb our Park Manager, and these items were only the ones he could reach and remove.

Do the right thing: take them out of the park and dispose of them responsibly at a transfer station or recycling depot, most items can be recycled for free. Doing anything else costs all of us as GFL fines us when they find items that should not be in the bins.

The nearest transfer station to SLSR is in Parksville at 860 Church Road, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, open most days (google Church Road Transfer Station for more information).

The following items must be taken to a transfer station and not left in or near the garbage bins:
Metal of any kind
Drywall and building materials
Yard and garden waste, including plastic pails and flower pots
Paint, oil, and hazardous liquids
Power tools
Furniture, including chairs and tables
Appliances, including BBQ’s
Plastic chairs and tables
Garden hoses
Foam filled cushions
Refundable containers
Propane canisters
Bicycles, toys, cloths
