CSWM Unstaffed Depot Closures The CSWM Board approved the closure of four unstaffed recycling depots within the CSWM service area. The depots located at Strathcona Gardens Recreation Complex and Courtenay Country Market are now permanently closed, and the Campbell River Sportsplex and Canex Retail Store depots will close effective July 2021. Note: Unfortunately due to excessive vandalism and unsanitary illegal dumping at the Canex Depot over the last few days, the facility was closed one day early in order to protect the health and safety of workers. We apologize for the inconvenience. The two remaining CSWM depots (Quadra Island and Oyster River) will remain open as they are rural and provide the only local option for recycling in those areas.
