The City of New Westminster is now collecting glass packaging in a new curbside collection program.
Your new grey box accepts non-refundable glass packaging, such as jam, sauce, or pickle jars.
How the Program Works
The curbside glass collection schedule is different from the existing solid waste collection schedule, as glass requires manual collection and must be collected separately. Each collection zone (A, B, C, D) will be divided into four sub-collection zones and will receive glass collection once every four weeks on their respective collection day.
Non-refundable glass bottles and jars, such as jam, sauce, or pickle jars
Containers must be emptied and rinsed with lids separated in general recycling.
Refundable glass bottles, such as wine and beer bottles
Drinking glasses, windows, mirrors, ceramics, and light bulbs
