Everyone wastes food and about half of this waste happens in our homes! In Canada, an average family of four throws out about $1500 of food per year. To help you to waste less food, we worked with Vancouver Coastal Health and the Table Matters Network to start the North Shore Foodprint Challenge.
A new province-wide recycling program began in May 19, 2014. This Stewardship Program is managed by Multi-Material BC (MMBC), a not-for-profit organization run by a private sector board of directors.
As a result of this province-wide change, options are being considered for the future of residential recycling services on the North Shore. To inform future decisions, we wanted to hear from North Shore residents about their expectations for recycling service.
We conducted a public consultation and survey of North Shore residents to find out what is important to them when it comes to who makes local recycling service decisions, the type of service they receive, and their openness to pay for various levels of service.
The survey results are intended to help inform future decision-making regarding the provision of recycling service to residents in the City of North Vancouver, District of North Vancouver and District of West Vancouver.

Your waste cooking oil can now be recycled into a valuable, sustainable fuel at the North Shore Recycling Program Drop-off Depot.
Simply save up your used canola, coconut, olive and other cooking oils and bring them down to the depot.
Since May 19, 2014, businesses that supply packaging and printed paper to B.C. residents have become 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, is working with North Shore Recycling Program and the North Shore municipalities to continue to provide recycling to North Shore residents.
