Garbage, Recycling & Green Cart

The Township of Langley has reduced in person interactions at our Facilities as a result of COVID-19. Recycling receptacles, collection calendars, and recycling guides are available for free delivery via Sierra Waste.  Requests may be made through our online form or by calling 604-530-3939.

Sort it Right

Are you still including glass bottles in your blue box? Maybe you’re still separating newsprint from other paper products. As of last summer, the Township’s recycling program requires new sorting requirements affecting glass bottles, newsprint, and other items. Make sure you’re sorting it right by using our ‘What Goes Where’ tool below, or by reviewing our recycling guide now available in English , Punjabi  , Chinese , and Korean . Remember, bins don’t sort recycling, people do!

Grey is for Glass

All curbside collection properties received a grey box for glass, and centralized collection properties (apartments/condos) received a glass cart in their waste area. Please separate all glass bottles and jars from your other containers. If you are missing your grey box or need more than one to hold your glass, pick up a grey box from customer service at our Civic Facility (20338 – 65 Avenue) or Operations Centre (4700 – 224 Street), or request free delivery. Do you live at a property with centralized collection often find the glass cart full? Have your property manager request an additional glass cart by calling the Engineering Division at 604-532-7300.

Recycling in the Township

Do you ever wonder why you go through the work of sorting items at home, only for it to look like the recycling truck empties everything into the same spot? You’re not alone! Rest assured the recyclables you separate at home stay separated once collected. Watch our short video to see how recycling trucks are designed to keep items separated. 

Acceptable Recycling Containers

Throughout the year you may find you have too much recycling to fit in your current recycling bins. The Township of Langley provides blue boxes, grey boxes, and yellow bags to residents at no charge. Properties are permitted to set out unlimited amounts of residential recycling provided it is sorted into the appropriate container. The use of clear or translucent blue bags for extra recyclables is not accepted.

Request additional blue boxes, grey boxes, or yellow bags online or by calling 604-530-3939. Recycling bins are also available for pick up at the Township’s Civic Facility (20338 - 65 Avenue) or Operations Centre (4700 - 224 Street).
Most household recyclables are free to drop-off at recycling depots and transfer stations. Be sure to call ahead.
