Curbside Recycling Pickup – Recycling Boxes & Bags
Curbside recycling should be set out by 7:00am to ensure pickup. DO NOT SET OUT YOUR RECYCLING THE NIGHT BEFORE as it is against municipal bylaws.
In partnership with the City of Maple Ridge, our weekly curbside recycling pickup service combines the best of door-to-door efficiency with sound environmental principals & practices. Our specially-designed recycling trucks have multiple compartments which help keep the recycling streams separate all the way from curb to manufacturer. Check out the RMRS Curbside Recycling Pickup Route Map.
