Curbside Collection

UPDATE: Garbage & Recycling Collection

Curbside recycling is now managed by Recycle BC. Learn more at RecycleBC.ca/CNV.

Green Can picked up BEFORE garbage

To minimize wildlife conflict, your curbside Green Can will be picked up BEFORE garbage. Do not place items out the night before. To ensure collection, place at the curb no earlier than 5:30am and no later than 7:30am on collection day.

Covid-19

To protect everyone, including our collection crews, please ensure all personal hygiene products, used tissues, cleaning cloths, face masks, gloves, and similar items are disposed of in garbage bags. Garbage bags should be tied securely for disposal. Un-bagged or loose items will not be collected.

If you’re sick or caring for someone who is sick: all personal waste should be double bagged in plastic garbage bags and securely tied shut, prior to putting out for collection.

For more information about your recycling please visit recyclebc.ca/covid19.

The City of North Vancouver provides curbside garbage and green can (food scraps and yard trimmings) collection to more than 8,500 households. The City is organized into collection areas (A1 & A2, B1 & B2, C1 & C2, D1 & D2) which determines your collection day (Monday through Thursday, except on weeks with a statutory holiday).
