If you have questions about your existing recycling collection, please contact the City of Vancouver up until the transition date of October 3, 2016 by calling 3-1-1. After that date, if you live in or manage a multi-family building with five or more units, where residents bring their recycling to carts a central location, please contact RecycleBC’s multi-family collection partner, Waste Management at 604-282-7961 (a small number of multi-family buildings will be serviced by Smithrite – please use the address search tool above to verify your collector) ; if you are a curbside customer (i.e. you bring your recycling individually to the curb using bins, bags or carts, including multi-family complexes with four or less units) please contact RecycleBC’s curbside collection partner, Smithrite Disposal Ltd at 604-282-7966.
