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.
The District of West Vancouver has made changes to the collection map. Please determine if you are in the light or dark version of your zone's colour. Your garbage will be collected when your colour is marked with a letter "G" in the calendar. If you need assistance determining your zone, please call (604) 925-7176 weekdays from 8:30-4:30 for individual help.
Please note: Recycling, Green Can and Yard Trimmings are still collected weekly.
You can view the map online here.
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.
In the event of hazardous road conditions due to snow and ice, it may be necessary to suspend garbage, recycling, Green Can and yard trimmings collection in some or all parts of the North Shore.
If your garbage and recycling is normally collected from the street, do not place your materials on the road. Keep them on the sidewalk or boulevard and remove them as soon as possible after they have been emptied.
