The bins will replace existing parks garbage bins and include options to recycle containers, food scraps, as well as a place for garbage.

During Phase 1 of this project, new recycling bins will be installed in Millennium Park, John Lawson Park, and Dundarave Park.

Next steps

Once the new bins have been installed, they will be regularly serviced and maintained by District staff. Staff will be monitoring the program and reporting back to Council on the results of this program to receive additional direction before expanding the program to additional parks.

We need your help 

Recycling effectively in public spaces can be challenging. Bins don’t recycle, people do! When recycling is not sorted properly, it all ends up in the landfill.

To make it as easy as possible for residents to recycle correctly, the colour-coded bins match other West Vancouver collection programs.
