Waste Collection Services

COVID-19 Updates

• We have resumed collection of excess materials and the Large Item Pick Up Program.
• Before heading to your local recycling depot, confirm that they are open. Refer to the Recycling Council of BC and Metro Vancouver websites for updates. 

As a safety precaution to both you and our workers, please do not approach our waste collection drivers.

Help Protect our Waste Collection Workers

As a precaution for the health and safety of waste collection workers during the COVID-19 pandemic, the following changes have been put in effect to protect our waste collection workers.

Curbside garbage, organics and recycling pickup

Please dispose of all the following items in your garbage cart, contained in plastic garbage bags: personal hygiene products, used tissues, cleaning cloths, face masks, gloves, sanitary wipes - even those listed as flushable or compostable - and all other similar items. Securely tie garbage bags shut and place in your Garbage Cart on your regular collection day. If you’re sick or caring for someone who is sick, double bag all personal waste in plastic garbage bags, before placing in your garbage cart. 

As an additional safety precaution to both you and our workers, please do not approach our waste collection drivers.

Large Item Pick Up Program

The Large Item Pick Up Program will resume again on May 19.

These measures have been in place to protect our waste collection workers and ensure they can carry out their duties safely during this time. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
