The Peace River Regional District says collection of some recyclable materials will be temporarily suspended at area transfer stations due to the unprecedented flooding in southern B.C.

Recycle BC is suspending the collection of glass bottles, jars, and foam packaging, and the PRRD says the suspension will impact 10 local transfer stations.

Collection is temporarily suspended at these stations effective Nov. 22 until further notice, and residents are asked to hold on to these items until regular service is able to resume.

"The situation is evolving rapidly and the PRRD thanks its residents for their cooperation and patience as first responders, municipalities, and emergency management teams deal with extremely challenging conditions to get services up and running," the regional district said in a statement. "Service updates will be posted as they become available."
