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 A to Z List for a list of items we accept at the Recycling Depot.

REMINDER: The Recycling Depot is CLOSED and there is NO CURBSIDE RECYCLING PICKUP on Statutory Holidays.

In addition to picking up recyclables curbside, at apartments, and at schools & businesses, we also run the Maple Ridge Recycling Depot which accepts over 200 different items.

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.

*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.
