Abbotsford / Mission Recycling Program
Abbotsford Community Services Recycling Program provides recycling services for the City of Abbotsford and the District of Mission. The facilities process blue bag and drop off recyclables from both Abbotsford and Mission. These recyclables are placed onto a conveyor belt and hand sorted by Abbotsford Community Services employees into different types of materials. Once sorted, the recyclables are either baled or loaded loose into shipping containers and sent to local markets for processing. Approximately 18,000 metric tonnes of recyclables are diverted from the landfill each year.
Abbotsford Community Services Recycling Program offers an extensive public awareness program. This includes both school and community education in our onsite constructed Recycling Education Centre and in the Compost Demonstration Garden which was built in partnership with the Fraser Valley Regional District. The Recycling Education Program also attends many community events like Agrifair, the Berry Festival and the Mission Candlelight Parade promoting both recycling and environmental awareness.
