Waste, Recycling, and Organics

Public Works manages garbage, recycling and organics (food scraps and yard trimmings) collection to the residents of the Village via contracted services. Annually, over 150 tonnes of waste, 240 tonnes of organics, and 125 tonnes of recyclables are transported to landfills, composting, and recycling facilities.

Garbage is collected every other week on Fridays. On the morning of Collection, set your garbage out no earlier than 5:00 a.m. and no later than 7:30 a.m. Garbage cans are not provided by the municipality and can be purchased from retailers throughout the lower mainland and Squamish.

Waste reduction should be the goal of every resident in the Village of Lions Bay. If each of us makes a small change to our purchasing and disposal habits, we can collectively reduce the waste we create.
