About the program

Summer’s over, (boo!!) and it’s time to clean up your garage (yippie!?)

Get rid of any old outdoor power equipment that’s broken and can’t be fixed. Recycle it with BC’s free outdoor power equipment recycling program. Drop off things like old lawn mowers, chainsaws and weed whackers. It’s easy! There are over one hundred collection sites across the province. Keep outdoor power equipment out of the landfill – recycle it!

OPEIC drop-off locations are accessible and convenient, ensuring most British Columbians can recycle their outdoor power equipment in their communities. Find one here.
