Multi-Family Collection

Recycling Service Provider
Recycle BC manages recycling services in the City of North Vancouver.

Recycling in apartments, stratas and townhomes is very simple with the 3 blue carts: containers, glass, and paper. Recycling is collected by Smithrite Disposal Ltd. under contract to the City. For more tips on recycling, download the Multi-Family Recycling Guide.

Recycling in Multi-Family Units

  • Create a place in your apartment/condo/townhouse to gather recyclables - a box or basket works great. Please rinse containers.
  • Keep a food scraps container under your sink or in your fridge to collect food scraps. For more tips on food scraps handling visit the Green Can/Food Scraps page.
  • Take your recycling and food scraps to your building’s garbage room/area and sort them into the correct carts. Don't forget to flatten cardboard boxes and plastic milk jugs to save space.
  • Bring recyclables which aren't collected in your building to a depot or to the North Shore Recycling & Waste Centre.


In this multi-family guide, learn how and where to recycle items and find tips to create less garbage.

The following companies offer organics (including food scraps, food-soiled paper and yard trimmings) collection services to multi-family buildings and businesses on the North Shore.
