Gitanyow, BC

There has not been any contact with the Gitanyow band office (closed during visit in 2015). 

The community does not have a lot of recyclable products in the community and the Regional Distrit of Kitimat-Stikine operate a Refuse Site about 10km to the south on Hwy 37 - see photo.  The RD Refuse site had a location for batteries, tires and other stewarded products.  There were a number of tires at the Refuse site - see photo and other products were absent (eg white goods).

There are no auto recyclers in the area with distances to Terrace and Smithers about 120km either way.  There is a recycler in Hazelton (Seeley Lake Service and Towing) that must be avoided as the recycler cannot demonstrate compliance to Federal or Provincial recycling laws.  Automobiles will need to be taken to Allen's Scrap & Salvage (250-638-6378) in Terrace and Harris Auto Wrecking Ltd (250-847-2114) in Smithers. 

Other recyclable products should be taken by the Kitwanga Refuse site for integration into the different stewardship programs.
