One Stop Recycling at Metro Vancouver Transfer Stations

One of the most convenient places to take recycling that isn’t picked up at the curb is any of the Transfer Stations around the Metro Vancouver region. A wide variety of recyclable materials are accepted for free at the stations; all you have to do is sort the items you bring into the appropriate bin or area. Check the individual transfer station for their list of accepted recyclable items. As an example, the Coquitlam Transfer stations accepts batteries, plastics, paint, pesticides, small appliances, electronics, cellular phones, white styrofoam, power tools, smoke alarms, books, clothing, paper, cardboard and much more.

Recycling Hotline

If you can’t figure out where to take something for recycling, the Recycling Council of BC has an app called “Recyclepedia” and a hotline to help you solve any recycling conundrum. Call 604-RECYCLE or visit www.rcbc.ca for more information.

City Wide Garage Sale

Take advantage of the upcoming city-wide garage sales coming up in Burnaby, Port Moody, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Chilliwack. You can take part if you live in one of these cities. All you do is organize a garage sale on your property for the day of the city wide garage sale, and sign up ahead of time. This is a great way to divert waste away from the landfill by finding a new home for your old stuff.
