The PIRS Board of Directors and Recycling Depot staff share a strong support of the aims of recycling.
A seven-person volunteer Board of Directors, lead by President Davy Rippner, is responsible for ensuring that Pender Island Recycling Society and the recycling depot are managed responsibly and continue to meet the evolving needs of the Pender Island community.
A "family" of eleven dedicated depot staff process the tonnes of newspaper, plastic, scrap metal, bottles, batteries, paint and more that is delivered to the Pender Island Recycling Depot every year. Each staff member brings a unique background and skill set to the team and are united in their belief of the principles of reduction, reuse and recycling.
