Recycle BC Takes on Recycling Collection in the City of Vancouver

blue-box-and-familyThe majority of Vancouver residents likely won’t be aware of a change happening at the curb and in their laneways: a transition of recycling collection services from the City of Vancouver to Multi-Material BC.

Residents can visit for information on their collection schedules and to download the MMBC recycling guide.  Residents are also encouraged to download MMBC’s mobile recycling app to access their recycling schedule and sign up for reminders, which is available for Apple and Android devices. Each download will provide an opportunity to enter to win Vancouver Whitecaps FC suite tickets.

Our contracted curbside collector, Smithrite Disposal Ltd. will provide weekly pick-up of residential recycling for single family homes, dwellings with 1-4 units and a small number of select dwellings with 5+ units. Waste Management of Canada Corp. will provide recycling services to multi-unit residential buildings.

There will be no changes to the types of materials collected as part of the curb-side and multi-family residential recycling program.
