Support continues for the Kootenay Lake Hospital Foundation as the Regional District of Central Kootenay and the Nelson Jr. Leafs Bottle Depot have pledged to continue to donate profits from beverage containers collected at the Nelson Transfer Station to the Foundation.

This service has been ongoing since Dec. 28, 2009 and a service agreement has been established between the two organizations.

The way it works is simple: the Nelson Jr. Leafs Bottle Depot services the bins and sorts the bottles on an as needed basis. All profits from the collected containers are then donated to KLH Foundation.

Recycling bins located at the Nelson Transfer Station provide residents with a place to recycle refundable beverage containers.

All refundable beverage containers and milk containers (non-refundable) are accepted in the bins at the Transfer Station — sorting is not required.

However, people must place individual containers into the bins as no bulk loads are accepted. Large volumes of containers can be taken to the Bottle Depot located at 120 Silica St.

All beverage containers collected will be sorted at the Bottle Depot and then shipped to the Lower Mainland to be recycled back into useful products.
