Kitseguecla, BC

There has not been any contact with the Kitseguecla 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 15km to the north of Kitwanga on Hwy 37.  The RD also has another Refuse Site in Hazelton about 25km to the east along Highway 16 .  The RD Refuse sites have a location for batteries, tires and other stewarded products.  There were a number of tires at the Kitwanga 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. 

Stewarded products should be taken to one of the RD's Refuse sites for integration into the different stewardship programs.
