The City Recycling Depot is permanently closed. New Westminster will join the new Metro Vancouver regional transfer facility being built on United Boulevard in Coquitlam anticipated to open in late 2020. For more information about the relocation of the recycling depot, please visit our project on the go page.
If you plan to visit a Metro Vancouver Solid Waste Facility there are some changes you should be aware of due to COVID-19.
These changes include:
Consider delaying your visit unless absolutely necessary. Store any dry recyclables and other items at home temporarily.
Stay home if you are in quarantine or self-isolation related to COVID-19.
Place the following items in bags for disposal: used tissues, sanitary wipes (even those labeled compostable or flushable), paper towels, napkins, cleaning cloths, face masks, gloves, and similar items. Double bag these items if you are sick or caring for someone who is sick.
