Scroll in on the map to find out where in your area you can recycle

We know recycling can be confusing sometimes, so we have put together a list of the most common questions we get. If you can't find the answer you're looking for, please go to the contact section to send us your question.

Curbside glass collection varies across the province. If you live in an area directly served by Recycle BC, please check your recycling guide. If you do not live in an area directly served by Recycle BC, please check with your local government or recycling collector for information about glass collection in your community.

For more information about your recycling collection, please contact the recycling collector listed on our direct service community pages. If you are not in one of our direct service communities, please contact your municipality for questions regarding your recycling.

Items that are inside a plastic bag cannot be recycled properly. The sorting machines at the recycling facility cannot sort the materials and for safety reasons, staff cannot open these bags.

You can leave the labels on containers. Please ensure that containers are empty and rinsed.

Some municipalities offer bulky item pick-up services or spring clean-up programs for residents. Large appliances like washers and dryers are usually included in these programs, and will be picked up for free. Private recycling or disposal companies can also be hired to haul the appliances for you. Call the RCBC Recycling Hotline for a list of pick-up options available in your community..
