Garbage and Recycling

Upcycling Design Challenge

Take the 2017 Upcycling Design Challenge this spring!

Upcycling involves taking waste material that would otherwise end up in our landfills and turning it into something valuable. Candy wrappers transformed into a new purse? Old glass bottles become a funky chandelier? The options are limited by your own creativity!

Challenge dates and details can be found on the Upcycling contest page.

Winter Curbside Collection 

For updates on garbage and recycling collection delays in your area, call our contractor Sierra Waste at 604.530.3939 or visit their blog, which is updated as needed.

There are a few easy ways you can find out if you should bring materials back in at the end of the day and put it out for the following week:

  1. Visit and sign up for a weekly collection reminder and be notified by email or phone
  2. View an updated list of collection delays at
  3. Call 604.530.3939 for updates

Due to the dropping temperatures, organic waste may freeze inside carts or cans. Collection staff make every effort to collect all contents, but in cases where this is not possible, we ask residents to please be patient and wait for the next collection day. To avoid materials freezing inside your cart/can:

  • Line the bottom and/or sides with newspaper or yard trimmings bags
  • Wrap food scraps in newspaper
  • Don’t overfill; tightly packed material can become stuck together. Keep contents loose.

New Drywall Disposal Options

All drywall is now being accepted at the Langley Transfer Station. It is not mandatory for used drywall to be tested for asbestos, but it must be double-bagged as specified below. The Township encourages safe handling procedures for all demolition and renovation waste. Residential quantities only.

Complete bagging instructions and tipping fee information.

Note: Drywall is not accepted at the Surrey Transfer Station.

New Cart Collection Program

Garbage and Green Carts for the new cart collection program have now been delivered. If your property is within our garbage collection area and you did not receive carts, call 604.532.3533 or email

Illegal Dumping Campaign

A big problem needs a bold statement! The #idiot campaign was developed to bring attention to the problem of illegal dumping. The word idiot stands for illegal dumper in our township. The campaign aims to increase awareness of proper disposal options and ways to report illegal dumping, as well as to warn offenders of penalties.

Set Out and Collection Times

Garbage carts, Green Carts, and recycling should be curbside by 7:30am or it may not be collected. It is not recommended to have garbage curbside before 8:00pm the night before. To see a collection calendar for your property, type your address below.
