Change of Recycling Collection Provider
As of July 1, 2020, Recycle BC is responsible for recycling in West Vancouver. Recycle BC’s selected collection contractor is Waste Control Services (WCS).
HOW THIS AFFECTS YOU
- Weekly recycling collection schedule and guidelines remain the same.
- Garbage and organics collection are not impacted by this change.
- You will no longer be charged for residential recycling collection on your utility bill next year.
- This year, your recycling fee has been reduced by half to reflect the mid-year change.
The District has provided residential recycling collection services as a contractor to a provincial organization called Recycle BC since 2014.
The District and Recycle BC are both committed to ensuring a smooth transition between collection contractors so that West Vancouver residents continue to receive high-quality recycling services.
Who is Recycle BC?
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.
