Prices

EXC_RoundIconTools_GreenBGThank you for recycling! You are helping to build a zero waste community.

Virtually all of the materials we collect and recycle are priced at cost, just to cover the 
expense of appropriate recycling or disposal. It is part of our mission to provide these 
services to the community and remove these materials from the waste stream.

Due to continuing turmoil and skyrocketing prices in the recycling industry, and greater expenses over all, Orcas Recycling Services has determined that charges for both garbage and recycling will need to increase this fall.

On October 1st 2019 the charges for a can of garbage will increase to $12; and to $400/ton over the scale. Recycling charges will go to $7 per can; and $350/ton over the scale. More info here. Download a PDF price list here
