New ocean plastic depot opens in British Columbia

White and brown plastic fishing nets on shore

The Ocean Legacy Foundation has opened an ocean plastic depot at the 7 Mile Landfill & Recycling Centre in Port McNeill, British Columbia. The depot will accept material from the shoreline, ocean, and industrial cleanup efforts, providing essential infrastructure to divert plastic resources from landfills and reduce ocean pollution. The program forms part of Ocean Legacy Foundation’s national strategy in addressing plastic pollution by creating end-of-life solutions for abandoned, lost discarded fishing gear and marine plastics while developing the plastic circular economy.
