Recycling and Garbage Services Overview
Please do your part to keep our waste collection staff and others, safe. COVID-19 related hygiene materials, such as used tissues, disposable wipes, face masks and gloves should be placed into garbage bags, tied securely and disposed of in the garbage.
Thanks to Richmond Residents, we are now diverting close to 80% of household waste. Click here to read the 2019 Annual Report: Continuous Improvement for Sustainable Waste Management.

The Recycling Depot will continue to operate 6 days per week (Tuesday to Sunday) from 9 am - 6:15 pm. Note there will be traffic control in place to ensure social distancing and safety.
