Garbage & Recycling

Collection Update

Set your collection items out by 7:30 a.m.

Starting July 3, West Vancouver’s residential curbside garbage, yard trimmings and Green Can items will be collected by a new company (Waste Control Services).

What does this change mean for you?

  • your collection day and limits remain the same (no change)
  • set your items out between 5–7:30 a.m. (no change)
  • collection can begin as early as 7:30 a.m. (Earlier pick up is the goal, so be sure to get items to the curb on time!)

West Vancouver diverts an estimated 72 per cent of residential waste from landfill and is committed to protecting, restoring and defending our natural environment.

Did we miss your pick-up?

Set your items out the following day and our crews will do their best to return. Missed you a second time? Please securely store your material until your next scheduled collection day. Ensure it is securely stored overnight to avoid attracting wildlife.
