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.

   

 

RMRS Curbside Blue Box Pickup TruckIn 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.

When it comes to taking care of our waste, we do things a little differently here than in other municipalities, hopefully this website will help you understand why. To learn more about the history of recycling in Maple Ridge, take a look at Our History.

Maple Ridge strongly believes in a resident-led, multi-sort system. Click to download the pdf RMRS Multi Stream Recycling Position Paper and learn more about why we remain committed to this system.
