The City of Port Moody collects recycling every other week. Mix all your recyclables together in your recycling cart - you don't need to sort items. Make sure all your recyclables are rinsed of food. Learn what you can recycle from Recycle BC.

See our Waste Collection Schedule for details. On your collection day, place your carts at the curb between 5:30 and 7:30am. The lid on your cart needs to shut completely. 

Contact us by email or call 604-469-4574 if you have questions about your carts or collection. 

No plastic bags icon   No plastic bags, film or overwrap should go in your recycling cart. Instead, take these back to a depot.
