Collection guides

New Garbage, Green Can, and yard trimmings guides were mailed in December. Recycle BC will mail a separate recycling collection guide in June. The Recycle BC guide includes information about recycling only. Please keep both collection guides.

Recycle BC has been responsible for recycling collection in West Vancouver since July 2020. For more information about recycling, visit the Recycle BC website.

You can also download the WestVanCollect app (available for iPhone and Android devices) and receive instant service change alerts, collection reminders, and personalized collection calendars straight to your phone.
