Habitat for Humanity wants you know that their depot for collecting refundable cans and bottles is now located at Salish Soils on Black Bear Road in Sechelt.
The depot is an important source of funds, used by volunteers to build homes for deserving families. Last year, the refunds added up to $47,000.
But the income dwindled when Habitat lost its location last summer, after the Sunshine Coast Regional District closed the recycling depot on the Sunshine Coast Highway. The recycling was taken over by Salish Soils.
Now Habitat has partnered with Salish Soils, so that when people drop off their recycling — as before — the refundable containers are taken by Habitat volunteers.
