Ocean Plastics Depot
Beach foam Drop off is full!
Marine debris collected through beach clean ups can be diverted from being buried through the newly established ocean plastics depot, at the Sechelt Landfill.
Items like beach foam, netting and ocean plastics will be transported for recycling through a partnership with the Ocean Legacy Foundation.
The depot is available to small scale shoreline clean ups by residents or community groups. Larger scale residential, commercial or industrial dock renovations and end of life materials will not be accepted at the depot and should contact Ocean Legacy directly.
How does it Work?
- A short orientation is required to use the depot for the first time, register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Review this information before your orientation.
- After the orientation, anytime the landfill is open, bring collected marine debris to the depot at no charge.
- Materials are transported to the Ocean Legacy Foundation for recycling. Learn what happens to collected plastics.
