About Blue Box and Blue Cart Recycling
Important Notice: Glass and foam recycling temporarily suspended effective Monday, November 22
Recycle BC has advised it has temporarily suspended the collection of glass and foam recycling effective Monday, November 22, 2021 until further notice. This takes effect in the Metro Vancouver region, including the City of Richmond. The suspension is a result of flooding in other parts of BC and the BC State of Emergency. This means that until service through Recycle BC resumes:
- the City will not be collecting glass recycling bins/carts from single family and multi-family residences
- the Richmond Recycling Depot will not be able to accept glass and foam recycling
- Residents are asked to hold onto these materials and not place them into other recycling receptacles until further notice.
The City will provide updates to residents as they become available. There are no other impacts to garbage, Green Cart, general Blue Box recycling or other Recycling Depot services at this time.
