I watch as my neighbours load up the trunks of their cars with bottles and cans for the recycling depot or nicely place them outside their doors for the local charity, Scouts group, or students to pick up.
But what happens to batteries, computers, personal electronics, hazardous materials, medication, oil, paper and cardboard, tires, clothing, metal, among other items? Are you confident that you know where to bring these items or do you nervously glance out of the corner of your eye as you bury them in your garbage hoping nobody will notice?
Whether a resident or a business, Metro Vancouver has an online tool for you! With Metro Vancouver Recycles, you can select different categories of materials, narrow down what the item is, and where possible find the closest recycling depot for that item!
