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: Winter Hours at the Depot start October 1, 2017. We will still open at 8:00am, but will be closing an hour earlier, at 5:00pm from Monday to Saturday. Sundays and holidays we will still be open from 9:00am – 5:00pm. We will switch back to Summer Hours in April.
REMINDER: There is NO CURBSIDE RECYCLING PICKUP on Statutory Holidays. Download the 2017 RMRS Holiday Blue Box Pickup Schedule.
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. The Maple Ridge Recycling Depot is OPEN on all stat holidays except Christmas Day & New Year’s Day.
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. You can keep on using what you’ve got till it is no longer usable, then you can order new ones. 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…
