Public Drop Off
Raven Recycling operates a free public drop off, making it easier than ever to recycle!
Non-Refundable Glass will no longer be accepted at recycling depots across the Yukon. Refundable Glass is still accepted.
Starting December 2, 2019
Non-Refundable Glass such as jars, oil, or sauce bottles will no longer be accepted at the 24 Hour Public Drop off at Raven Recycling and at depots across the Yukon. Non-Refundable Glass includes all glass containers that did not hold a beverage at the time of purchase.
Glass containers that held a beverage at the time of purchase are known as ‘Refundable Glass’ and can still be returned to Raven, and other depots, for a refund. Examples of Refundable Glass include beer bottles, wine bottles, and juice bottles.
Drop Off Hours
Our drop off area is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
A Note About Sorting
Recycling is a global industry with volatile markets. To ensure our materials are worth something, we have to sort items properly and keep contamination low.
Before you bring anything to Raven, make sure your materials are rinsed, dry and sorted.
Rinsing dirty containers (they don’t need to sparkle) before recycling, keeping paper clean and dry, and separating different materials (e.g. removing plastic packaging from cardboard boxes) goes a long way in helping Raven continue to recycle as much as possible.
What Do We Accept?
All items brought to Raven are sorted by-hand by our team. We do not use large sorting machines, so information about recycling in other areas of Canada do not necessarily apply to what we accept! For example, we accept plastic bags!
For small items (smaller than your hand) please try to keep them in a larger item so that we can recycle every bit you drop off. For example, small pieces of soft plastic could all go into a plastic bag and be recycled together in the “Soft Plastic” bin.
We accept the following items at our free public drop off area:
