Mixed recycling, electronic waste, and Styrofoam are also accepted at private depots. The Lorne Street Bottle Depot also accepts paint.

New for June 1, 2018, RecycleBC is piloting a program for other flexible plastic packaging products. This includes zipper-lock and stand up pouches, crinkly wrappers (eg: chip bags, granola bar wrappers), plastic netting (eg: used for fruit) and flexible packaging (eg: bubble wrap). These items can be separated and taken to either General Grant's locations for recycling.
