SNOW UPDATE: We ARE picking up recycling today (Wednesday, February 20). If anything changes, we will post it here. The trucks may take longer than expected to finish routes due to picking up additional recycling from two weeks in a row.
Thank you very much for your understanding & patience this past week as we dealt with challenging weather and road conditions.
Note: NO extra pickups will be added for days missed due to snow & road conditions.
If you have a lot of recycling, please bring it to the Maple Ridge Recycling Depot at 10092 – 236th Street, open from 8am – 5pm Monday – Saturday (9am – 5pm on Sundays & holidays).
The Recycling Depot is now on WINTER HOURS and closes at 5:00pm.
