WASTE MANAGEMENT

Waste management is a joint service between the Village of Pemberton and the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District, managed by the SLRD.

PLEASE SELECT A TOPIC:

Did you know? The energy saved from recycling one glass bottle will light a 100 watt bulb for four hours!

Every little bit helps: even a small community like Pemberton can make a big difference when it comes to reducing waste: wasted energy as well as the waste that enters our landfills.

Did you know? The cooking grease from your kitchen requires proper disposal and should not go down the drain. Help prevent blockages and sewer line problems by "canning the grease" and throwing it in the trash.
