Where can you take your recycling?

In preparation for the City recycling depot closing in February 2020 to accommodate the new aquatics and community centre, we will be holding several pop up recycling events in the city throughout New Westminster. We will be joining Metro Vancouver’s new regional transfer station when it opens in fall 2020. Dates for these events can be found on the city website at with details to come.
