Welcome to Ridge Meadows Recycling’s website!
Mission: Ridge Meadows Recycling Society is a community-based, non-profit organization, advocating zero waste, operating responsible waste reduction services and providing environmental education. We employ people with developmental disabilities assisting their integration into the community.
Vision: A waste free, socially responsible community
We are located at 10092 – 236th Street, Maple Ridge, BC, just off River Road in the Albion Industrial Park. Come check us out – and don’t forget your recyclables! Download the RMRS A to Z for a list of items we accept at the Recycling Depot.
**Note: We are switching to Summer Hours on April 1, 2017 and will be open an extra hour, from 8:00am till 6:00pm from Monday to Saturday. Sundays and holidays we are still open from 9:00am – 5:00pm. We will switch back to Winter Hours in October.
REMINDER: There is NO CURBSIDE RECYCLING PICKUP on Statutory Holidays. Starting in 2017, the Maple Ridge Recycling Depot will be OPEN on all stat holidays except Christmas Day & New Year’s Day. Download the 2017 RMRS Holiday Blue Box Pickup Schedule.
Ridge Meadows Recycling Society also administers the Spring & Fall Brush Chipping Programs, Maple Ridge’s Wildsafe BC program, and the Low-Flow Toilet Tax Credit program. We are the lead coordinator on Celebrate Earth Day in Maple Ridge (April) and each Spring we sell Composters, Solar Cone Food Digesters, Rain barrels, & Bear-Resistant Totes.
*NOTE: We are currently in the process of phasing out some of the recycling bags. This will take place over a number of months, so keep on using what you’ve got till it is no longer usable. Our workers will pick up whatever you put out, as long as it is recyclable items that we accept in our curbside pickup program.
Lots has changed since we began recycling in Maple Ridge in 1972 – over 40 years ago!
And the changes continue with new programs…
