Recycling, Composting & Garbage

As identified in our Solid Waste Management Plan, the Fraser Valley Regional District and its member municipalities are united in reducing the amount of waste disposed of in the region.

The FVRD has a waste sorting bylaw that applies to all properties in Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Harrison Hot Springs, Hope, Kent, Mission, and all FVRD electoral areas. The bylaw requires that all recyclable and compostable material be sorted out of the garbage, kept separate, and delivered to appropriate waste processing or disposal facilities. If you live in a municipality, check with your local government about curbside collection. FVRD's electoral area resident's can find out where to dispose of their waste here.

Recycling is an important part of waste diversion. Try the Recyclepedia below to find drop-off locations and recycling options near you.

We can all work together to rethink, reduce, reuse and recycle so that waste production is minimized and anything leftover can be considered a valuable resource. Visit for more information.
