Fraser Lake Bottle Depot & Recycling Centre
Fraser Lake Bottle Depot and Recycling Centre is helping to keep Fraser Lake and BC green one bottle at a time. Fraser Lake and area residents are encouraged to do their part for the planet by bringing in their empty beverage containers, used paper and cardboard and old computers and appliances to be made into something brand new.
The proceeds from beverage containers left at the depot after-hours are donated to local charities.

Meet Jonathan Lee
Jonathan Lee just happened to be passing through Fraser Lake a few years ago when he drove past a sign noting that the Fraser Lake Bottle Depot was for sale. Something about it and the town caught his attention. Perhaps it was the fact that he was a seasoned business owner and was looking for a bit of change in his professional life. Perhaps it was the beauty and charm of the Fraser Lake area. Whatever it was, the encounter turned out to be destiny. He stopped in, looked around, liked what he saw and soon was in the process of buying the business.
The move and the change have been positive for Jonathan. He loves the fact that life here is so casual and laid back. He immediately found the residents to be friendly and welcoming. He enjoys the country living lifestyle and the quick access to the amazing outdoors and all it has to offer. He likes to fish and is an amateur photographer and gets many opportunities to both of those things here in Fraser Lake.
Jonathan has always liked being his own boss and meeting the challenges of owning a small business. Buying the Fraser Lake Bottle Depot brought a welcome change, with fewer hours than some of his previous businesses demanded from him, giving him more time to enjoy all of the wonderful places in and around Fraser Lake. His favourites include Mouse Mountain and White Swan Beach.
