Removing the Printers at Mountain Road and Collishaw Street Locations: June 2021

Since July 1, 2020, Re-Centre bags are sold with barcoded sticker sheets included.  As previously announced, we will need to remove the printing stations at the depots. Enough Re-Centre members have now started using the new Re-Centre bags to allow us to do so, but since many did not get the chance to recycle as much during the past winter months, we have decided to delay the removal of the printers to the month of June, in order to give members one last chance to print stickers ahead of time for any old Re-Centre bags they may still have in stock at home. 

Thus, if you have old Re-Centre bags without sticker sheets left at home, we encourage you to print stickers for these remaining bags before the printers are removed. After which, you will always have sticker sheets included when you purchase new Re-Centre bags.  

Scan Your Card, Then Your Bags…

Your Re-Centre (or Re-Express card) and key tags are the only items that can unlock and open the depot doors. It is important to ALWAYS follow these steps at the depots: 

  1. Scan your card (or key tag) to open the door and start the transaction.
  2. Scan each bag you wish to link to your account.
  3. Close the door once all your bags are inside the depot to end the transaction.

Keep in mind…

  • If someone else is already at the depot putting bags inside, please WAIT until they are finished. This is important, not only because of physical distancing due to COVID-19, but also because a transaction is in progress. If you do not want your bags to be associated with another member’s account, stand back and wait for your turn. 
  • The automatic locking mechanism takes a few seconds to activate once you have closed the door. In fact, you will hear the distinct click of the locking mechanism activating. If you feel the need to double-check that the door has indeed locked properly, wait about 30-45 seconds to give the locking mechanism the chance to activate.
