Multi-Family Collection

We are transitioning to a new recycling service provider
Starting July 1, 2020, Recycle BC will manage recycling services in the City of North Vancouver.
Learn more.

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 City's guide: Apartment & Townhouse Recycling Guide - pdf

Three simple steps to recycling:

  1. Find a spot in your apartment/condo/townhouse to gather recyclables. A box or basket works great. Please rinse containers.
  2. Keep a food scraps container under your sink or in your fridge to collect food scraps. For more tips on food scraps handling see: Green Can/Food Scraps
  3. 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.


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.
