The Regional District of BulkleyNechako has issued a friendly reminder to the residents of Fort St. James.

As of July 1, cardboard will no longer be accepted at Regional District of Bulkley Nechako landfills and transfer stations as garbage.

Residents are encouraged to drop their cardboard off at the appropriate recycling facilities.

Industrial, commercial and institutional customers will be responsible for arranging cardboard recycling services directly with a local collector or service provider and paying associated costs.

In Fort St. James, the simplest and lowest cost option, according to the District Office, is to take your flattened cardboard to the Integris Recycling Centre located on Manson Street behind the ambulance station.

This service is currently offered free of charge by Nak’azdli Band in partnership with the District of Fort St. James and the Regional District of Bulkley Nechako.

Fees will likely go into effect in the future.

If you require small to moderate amounts of cardboard and other recyclables picked up on a scheduled basis, there is a local recycling business, Imperative Recycling. Residents may contact them at: (250) 996-4066 or on-line at:

For larger amounts of cardboard, arrangements can be made with the following businesses:

Cascades Recovery Inc. (250) 563-0233 or at
