One-stop recycling depot

Residents of Sooke will now have a transfer station which will accept all types of recyclables, garbage, appliances, wood and metal scraps.

Dale Arden is opening a recycling transfer station at the site of the old mill on Idlemore Road.

“The town has been screaming for an accessible transfer station,” said Mike Hicks.

“I saw the need for it and I have the property to do it and all the equipment we need,” said Arden. Arden also said the large site is accessible and will be kept tidy.

The transfer station, across from the Sooke Bottle Depot, will be open on Saturday, March 1.

“It’s competitive (price-wise) to any recycling company in North America,” said Arden.
