Curbside Collection

Garbage & Recycling Collection Continue

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. Thank you for your help.

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).

Garbage is collected every other week. Recycling, green cans and yard trimming are collected weekly.

How to set out curbside materials

How to set out curbside

To ensure collection and avoid attracting animals:

  • Your Green Can will be picked up BEFORE garbage on collection day (starts January 2020)
  • Place materials at the curb no earlier than 5:30am and no later than 7:30am on collection day

General tips:

  • Set cans, boxes and bags side-by-side in a straight line for quick, easy collection
  • Use 77L cans and ensure lids are secured (do not use clips, bungee cords, rope or straps), and do not overfill cans
  • Yellow Bag: place beside, not inside your Blue Box
