Recycling

New Recycling Service Provider

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

Recycle BC is a provincial stewardship group funded by the businesses that supply packaging and printed paper to BC residents. Recycle BC was formed in response to provincial regulations, which shift recycling costs away from taxpayers and on to industry.
