The Capital Regional District will continue to collect glass containers as part of its curbside blue box program.

The board rejected a recommendation by its environmental services committee to phase out the collection of bottles and jars from about 120,000 single-family dwellings.

The CRD has collected glass containers as part of its residential curbside blue box program since it began in 1988.

Glass container collection will continue until at least the current collection contracts expire on April 30, 2019, said a CRD press release.
