Most of us know that not everything goes into our curbside recycling, but what do we do with these items? For a small fee some items can be recycled at Pacific Mobile Depots. Visit their website for details and costs.
Another great site is the North Shore Recycling. Once on the site, look for the big brown button that says "where do I recycle this?" Click on that to find out how to recycle or dispose of over 200 items." This list covers just about everything!
Help punch out styrofoam! A North Vancouver company is providing residents with an option for recycling goods such as styrofoam, some plstics and gable-top milk, soy & soup containers which don't fit in the curbside pick-up options. For $6 you buy a red bag, which is slightly larger than the average garbage bag and once filled, return it to the company. The drop off time is Saturdays 9AM to 1PM. This option is provided by WCS Recycling, located at 1493 Dominion St, North Van.
Make conservation second nature.
