How to Recycle Items in Victoria from Appliances To Toys Tag: victoria

When moving to a new area, it is important that you get an understanding of how all of the systems work, but learning a neighbourhood's system can sometimes feel like an uphill battle. From figuring out the days of the week when the truck comes to pick up the garbage, to what they will pick up, and how to recycle or compost, is not always something easily discovered.

We want to make sure that this is an easier task for you, and so we have put together some information for the Capital Regional District’s recycling program in Victoria.

Navigating A Re-Opening Victoria Tag: victoria

Full breakfast table

It’s been a long slow journey, but in BC at least, we are finally starting to see a cautious reopening of the world around us. This means greater freedom to get outside, to use local businesses, and to travel further distances - but all of course while observing safe distancing and hygiene practices.

With Phase 2 of BC’s response to the Covid-19 crisis having progressed smoothly, we will soon enter Phase 3, which means looser restrictions on travel and movement - according to BC Premier John Horgan. During this phase, we will all be able to expand our ‘bubbles’, multiplying the circle of friends and family we can gather with.

To celebrate this, we’re going to look at what this means for you, and us, as well as spotlighting some of our favourite businesses and local gathering spots where you can meet other members of your bubble.

There is nothing quite like the splendour and joy of a Victoria summer, in which the sparkling harbour comes to life with festivals, entertainment, and celebrations aplenty. As always the centrepiece of the Victoria summer is Canada day—where we can all get together and celebrate the diversity, spirit, and history that make us proud to be Canadian. 

Once again, the fine people of Victoria have put together a full package of events for the special day. Along with an eclectic and exciting mix of live music, entertainment and activities, we’ll also be taking up the challenge of the Coast Capital Living Flag event—last year saw 3,600 participants taking part to form the ‘Largest Living Flag In The Country’. Of course, the fun doesn’t stop there, there’s plenty happening throughout July and August to keep residents and visitors occupied, and we’ve compiled a list of some of the highlights.
