Renewing Your Depot Operating Permit

Depot Permit terms are a maximum length of five years. It is the responsibility of each Permit Holder to submit a Permit Renewal Application to the BCMB at least 60 days prior to the expiration of their current Permit but no earlier than 6 months prior. Click the link below to access the Permit Renewal Application. 

Late submissions will not be accepted unless a Permit Amendment – Extension Request application and the associated $600 fee are submitted. Failure to provide a Permit Renewal Application along with any additional information requested by the BCMB will result in the Permit expiring at the conclusion of the existing Permit term. A Permit can also be cancelled by the BCMB at any time during the Permit term if a Permit Holder fails to comply with the terms and conditions of the Permit, the Beverage Container Recycling Regulation, BCMB By-laws, policies or guidelines. Should a Permit expire or be canceled, Depot operations must cease immediately.

If you have any questions regarding the process or require further information, please contact a BCMB Compliance Officer. Click the link below to be redirected to the Contact Page.
