·1 min read

It is a new year, which means a new calendar and a new waste collection schedule in Terrace and the surrounding area.

The City of Terrace, and Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine (RDKS) have released detailed schedules and guides for waste collection on their respective websites. The RDKS is responsible for collection in Terrace’s outlying areas, including Jackpine Flats, Thorhnill, Usk, North Terrace and both Old and New Remo.

There is also a free app called Recycle Coach that offers a variety of features to help people manage their garbage and recycling. People can see a personalized collection schedule, receive custom pickup reminders, and use a search tool to find out what waste goes in what bin. Users can also report a problem with their collection through the app, which is available on Apple’s App Store and Google Play.

The Thornhill Transfer Station, Terrace area landfill is located at 3016 Old Lakelse Lake Rd. and accepts items not able to be picked up by roadside collection.
