Abbotsford Mission Recycling Program
Abbotsford Community Services Recycling Program provides recycling services for the City of Abbotsford and the District of Mission. The facility processes 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.
The Recycling Program also offers an extensive public awareness program that includes both school and community education. Onsite, workshops are conducted in the Education Centre, constructed from two 45-foot shipping containers, and in the Compost Demonstration Garden which was built in partnership with the Fraser Valley Regional District. The Recycling Education Program also organizes abs attends many community events like Agrifair, the Berry Festival, and Environmental Mind Grind promoting both recycling and environmental awareness.
