Here are items NOT Accepted at the Maple Ridge Recycling Depot:

  • carpeting – bring to landfill ☹
  • broken drink glasses, mirrors, & window panes – bring to landfill ☹ *these are made of a different kind of glass, so unfortunately cannot be accepted with the regular glass jars & bottles for recycling.
  • ceramic plates & dishes – unless you can give them away, bring to landfill ☹
  • REMINDER: photos and photo paper are NOT accepted for recycling.


  • reusable toys & furniture – donate to charity
