Expanded Drywall Disposal Options

Metro Vancouver has expanded the number of facilities that accept used gypsum (drywall) in the region. Used gypsum can now be dropped off at both the Langley (1070 - 272 Street) and Surrey (9770 - 192 Street) transfer stations. While it isn’t mandatory for used gypsum to be tested for asbestos, it must be double-bagged in specially marked bags as required by Metro Vancouver 

Note: This program does not accept used gypsum from contractors or businesses. The Township encourages safe handling procedures for all demolition and renovation waste.

New Recycling Program

Like the majority of municipalities across British Columbia, the Township is now a part of Recycle BC , a not-for-profit organization responsible for residential packaging and paper recycling across the province.

In addition to providing consistent, effective recycling throughout the province, joining Recycle BC helps transfer more responsibility to the producers and manufacturers of recyclable materials. Recycle BC works closely with these manufacturers and producers to ensure their support of the program and their commitment to creating items that can be responsibly recycled. 

Adjusting the Township’s processes will ensure they align with Recycle BC’s requirements. Learn more about the new program.

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.
