Plastic bags, styrofoam can now be recycled at London Drugs

Items not accepted curbside since Fraser Valley communities signed on with Recycle BC

Those wanting to recycle plastic bags, plastic overwrap and styrofoam will now be able to drop off the materials at London Drugs in Abbotsford, Chilliwack and Mission.

Recycle BC (formerly Multi-Material BC) has announced a partnership with the franchise to offer the recycling options.

Chilliwack, Mission and Abbotsford joined the Recycle BC program earlier this year, which resulted in the materials no longer being accepted curbside.

London Drug stores in Vancouver and on Vancouver Island already accept the material.

Residents can also return plastic bags, overwrap and foam packaging at depots in the cities.
