Salt Spring Garbage & Recycling

Number-1 Garbage pickup services in Salt Spring (BC)

Our Story

Since way back in 1960, Salt Spring Garbage & Recycling Company (the original trash heroes) have been cleaning up the community's act on Salt Spring Island. At first, we were just a humble landfill, but in 1990 we decided to spruce things up and become a solid waste transfer station. Throughout all these years, we've remained a fan favorite – family-owned and operated since day uno!

At Salt Spring Garbage & Recycling, we're the ultimate one-stop-trash-shop. Need to toss out your old stuff? We got you covered. We offer residential and commercial garbage pickups, and we're all about that construction life too – renting out snazzy 12- and 40-yard bins! Plus, we operate a solid waste transfer station right at 360 Blackburn Road. But wait, there's more! We're also green heroes, recycling metal, cardboard, drywall, small appliances, paper, electronic drywall, clean wood and green waste.

So, got some waste that needs banishing on the Island? We're the wizards for that! And do you know what's even cooler than being cool? We're home to the Blackburn mall, where all profits from donations magically transform back into the community as scholarships and donations. A win-win for all, right?

    Garbage transfer station with a twist. There is a garbage area that you can leave your usable items at (once you paid to dispose of them) and items you buy there are by donations and the donations are given away each year as scholarships at the local high school. Some good finds there and using things from there keeps them out of the landfill. It's Salt Spring Garbage Services but the locals all call it the 'Blackburn Mall'
