Cowichan Lake residents, here’s a head’s up: Winter hours are now in effect at Meade Creek Recycling Centre. The facility is open Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Those needing to dispose of refuse or to do some recycling on days the Meade Creek centre isn’t open still have the option of heading to the Bings Creek Recycling Centre on Drinkwater Road in North Cowichan. That facility is open every day from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and accepts the widest range of materials for recycling of any of the Cowichan Valley’s outlets. All of the CVRD depots are closed for statutory holidays and on Easter Monday and Boxing Day.
