The City of Vancouver’s residential recycling collection transitioned to Multi-Material BC (MMBC) on October 3, 2016. Below are some answers to questions Vancouver residents might have about this transition.
What does this mean for you?
There are no changes to the types of materials collected as part of the residential recycling program and the majority of residents had no change to their recycling schedule. Residents that do not yet have segregated glass, currently being rolled out by the City of Vancouver, will have this added by MMBC between October and December, and a small number of households had a change to their recycling schedule. Please refer to the curbside recycling guide or multi-family recycling guide, or search your address above, to see if you had any schedule changes.
Was Vancouver already part of the MMBC program?
When did recycling collection transition to MMBC?
Did my collection schedule change?
Multi-family buildings previously serviced by City of Vancouver collection crews may also see their schedules change. Building owners or manager were notified prior to the transition if this was the case.
Does MMBC directly provide recycling service to any other communities?
Who can I contact for more information about my recycling service?
If you are a multi-family building owner, manager or strata, you should have received a letter from the City of Vancouver detailing changes to your recycling service.
