Where to drop off your recycling
Many items that aren't accepted in curbside recycling programs can still be recycled if you drop them off at designated locations.
North Shore Transfer Station
You can drop off your recyclables at Metro's North Shore Transfer Station recycling drop-off area, which now accepts a larger range of recyclables.
Designated drop-off centres
Here are the items you can safely recycle by bringing them to designated drop-off centres throughout the North Shore:
- plastic foam packaging
- plastic bags
- small appliances
- light bulbs and fixtures
- motor oil and antifreeze
- paint and pesticide
Living safely with wildlife
The District is home to a variety of wild animals, including skunks, raccoons, coyotes, cougars, and bears.
Whether they're searching for food, or looking for a warm place to call home, there are steps you can take to make your property less inviting to them.
