North Shore Residents are great recyclers, with over 11,000 tonnes of recyclables collected curbside each year!
In our single family curbside recycling program, we collect only materials set out in approved recycling receptacles:
Our contractor will collect from a Blue Box supplied by the North Shore Recycling Program OR a Blue Box you purchase yourself or bring from another municipality, provided that the following conditions are met:
Provided by the North Shore Recycling Program OR a paper bag filled with mixed paper and clearly marked as 'mixed paper'
Provided by the North Shore Recycling Program OR a paper bag filled with newspaper and clearly marked as 'newspaper'
You can order a Blue Box and Yellow and Blue bags via our online form, by calling 604.984.9730, or by visiting the North Shore Recycling Drop-off Depot. Blue and Yellow Bags and Yard Trimmings decals can be picked up at your local municipal hall.

Metro Vancouver has a material ban in place for all materials recyclable in the Blue Box - recycling is required in order to help us meet the 70% waste diversion goal.
