Spending more time at home this summer? As the weather improves, home projects both big and small provide a great opportunity for you and your family to keep busy while staying safe and healthy this season. During home improvements remember to put waste in it's rightful place by taking the following information into consideration.
Drywall and Gypsum (new and used) – These items require special handling and disposal. For more information on how and where to safely dispose of new and used gypsum, please visit Metro Vancouver's New and Used Gypsum Disposal page.
Clean wood waste including solid wood, lumber and pallets are banned from the regular garbage and should be brought to Ecowaste Industries or the Vancouver Landfill for recycling. Small amounts of clean wood can be placed in the residential Green Cart.
Green waste including grass clippings, tree trimmings, plants and more should go into your green cart for curbside collection. No room? No problem. Residents can set out unlimited amounts of green waste in paper yard waste bags on collection days or visit our yard and garden trimming drop off page for a list of locations and information on how to prepare for disposal.
