The Green Can Program allows residents in the City of North Vancouver, District of North Vancouver, and District of West Vancouver to set food scraps and food-soiled paper curbside for composting along with yard trimmings instead of sending them to the landfill with the garbage. These short how-to videos are designed to help residents get started.
The District of West Vancouver Council has approved a move to bi-weekly garbage pickup in Spring 2013, which will help the District reach its target of diverting 70 per cent of residential garbage from landfills and incinerators. Garbage will be collected every second week, while recycling, Green Cans and yard trimmings will continue to be picked up every week.

The North Shore News recently featured the Bag to Earth Small Food Waste bags for use in the Green Can Curbside Food Scraps Recycling Program. These bags can be used for collecting food on your counter or in the fridge or freezer through the week and will help to keep your curbside container clean.
For those interested in a cost-free option, simply collect your food scraps in 3-4 sheets of newspaper and wrap them securely into a bundle, like a burrito. These bundles can be kept in a container of your choice throughout the week before they are transferred to your green can on the morning of collection.
Please remember that food scraps are not accepted curbside in paper bags as they will attract wildlife – they must be contained in a regulation-sized curbside container.
For more information please visit greencan.northshorerecycling.ca.
The North Shore Recycling Program office will be closed on Monday, May 20 for Victoria Day and will reopen on Tuesday, May 21 at 8:30 a.m.
Your curbside collection will be affected, so please check your 2013 collection schedule for details.
The North Shore Recycling Drop-off Depot, located at 29 Riverside Drive, North Vancouver, will be open every day on the long weekend:
