Starting May 19, 2014, businesses that supply packaging and printed paper to B.C. residents will be responsible for collecting and managing these materials so they can be recycled.
Multi-Material B.C. (MMBC), a non-profit organization working on behalf of these businesses, will be working with North Shore Recycling Program and the North Shore municipalities to continue to provide recycling to North Shore residents.
Your curbside collection will be affected, so please check your 2014 collection guides for details, or click here to view the online collection schedules.
The North Shore Recycling Drop-off Depot, located at 29 Riverside Drive, North Vancouver, will be open every day on the long weekend:

The GardenSmart Workshop Series demonstrates sustainable gardening techniques that help North Shore Residents reduce waste, support our local ecology and grow their own food.
There is a $8.25 charge per workshop. This minimal charge will help the Edible Garden Project and the Lynn Canyon Ecology Centre continue their valuable work in our community.

Bears travel extensively in search of food, and it’s normal for them to pass through residential neighbourhoods on the North Shore. The best way to prevent a bear from stopping in your backyard is to manage attractants responsibly – if bears do not find food, they will move on.
