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 Recycling and Waste Centre (formerly North Shore Transfer Station)
You can drop off your recyclables at the recycling area at the North Shore Recycling and Waste Centre, which accepts a large range of recyclables.
Estimate your costs before you go
Metro Vancouver recycling and waste centres offer a range of free or paid recycling services. Their online cost estimator can help you estimate the cost to recycle accepted materials. Actual costs are based on the weight of materials, which is determined by weighing your vehicle as it enters the centre, and again as it leaves.
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.
