Join us in giving the Gift of Warmth!
The gift of warmth provides local homeless folks with winter gear to keep them warm!
Regional Recycling’s Vancouver Depot (960 Evans Avenue ) services a large number of Binners. These people make their income by collecting beverage containers throughout the city and returning them for the deposit refund. These folks do the city a great service by separating the waste streams and ensuring that items that do not belong in landfills get returned to the recycling loop. They work very hard for their money, in all types of weather and in the winter it’s pretty wet out there.
With Fall upon us, Regional Recycling Vancouver is collecting warm personal items until December 17th to provide these customers with the gift of warmth this wet and chilly season.
Our Vancouver location is accepting the following items for donation:
- NEW: Adult Socks & underwear
- CLEAN, GENTLY USED:
- Adult outerwear
- Blankets & tarps
We will distribute these items at a BBQ at our Regional Recycling Vancouver Depot on December 17th.
Please take your items into the bottle collection area of the depot, and indicate to the staff that the items are for donation to the Gift of Warmth.
If you are unable to come into the Vancouver Depot and would like to participate you can. Donate your items at any of our other Lower Mainland Regional Recycling locations prior to Dec 17th.
