IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and protect our waste collection staff:

  • ensure that all personal hygiene products, used tissues, cleaning cloths, face masks, gloves, and similar items are disposed of in garbage bags.
  • securely tie garbage bags. Un-bagged or loose items will not be collected.
  • sort materials correctly. Crews are taking extra precautions and will not be sorting through garbage or recycling at the curb.


As of July 1, 2020, Recycle BC is responsible for recycling collection in West Vancouver.

  • Weekly recycling collection will continue.
  • Recycling set out guidelines will remain the same.
  • This will not impact garbage or organics collection.
