Plastic, rigid packaging containers - all types

All hard plastic packaging (the number inside the recycling symbol isn’t important) is now part of the curbside and drop-off depot collection programs. If the containers are smaller than 4 litre (1 gallon) in size, simply place them loose in your blue box or container cart for collection.

Please ensure all packaging is clean, and flatten all items if you are able, to save space.

For containers over 4 litre (1 gallon) in size, you can drop them off free of charge at one of three depots on the North Shore:

  • North Vancouver Bottle & Return-it-Depot (310 Brooksbank Avenue, North Vancouver, 604.924.3889)
  • North Shore Bottle Depot (235 Donaghy Avenue, North Vancouver, 604.985.9348)
  • North Shore Recycling Drop-off Depot (29 Riverside Drive, North Vancouver, 604.984.9730)
