“Recycle BC is excited to continue to offer pop-up recycling events in 2024 for residents of Parksville, Qualicum Beach, and surrounding areas through our partnership with the PCCS,” said Brendan McShane, Director, Collection, Recycle BC. “These events offer a closer recycling solution for depot-only materials, mixed paper, and cardboard and will help keep these materials out of the landfill and our environment.”
We thank the community for your support and for bringing your recyclable materials to the popups for collection.

Pause in Community Market Schedule

Hello everyone,

First, I would like to thank all of you so much for supporting our Sunday Markets!

It has been wonderful having you all here.  Our amazing Volunteer crew have been so awesome, and are in need of a little break to enjoy the summer, but mostly to spend some time with family.

We are still taking bookings for our July 16th, 23rd and 30th Markets with July 30th being our last one until October when we will open up our Winter Markets. They will begin mid to late October, but not to worry as we will send everyone out a notice of the start date for the first Winter Market well in advance. 

From all the Board, Staff and Volunteers, we wish you a terrific summer and hope to see you all back with us at the Winter Markets starting in October! 

Pat Famulak,

Market Manager,

Vice President PCCS
