Public Recycling Centre Now Open in North Vancouver• News
Metro Vancouver’s North Shore Recycling and Waste Centre, located at 30 Riverside Drive, North Vancouver, B.C., received a grant from BCUOMA which provided them with a 20-foot modified sea container and two, 1,000-litre tanks. This new recycling infrastructure will provide the residents of the North Shore with an easy, free and eco-friendly facility to return used oil and antifreeze materials.
“Many individuals living on the North Shore are hands-on when it comes to changing their motor oil in their cars, boats, recreational and off-road vehicles, watercrafts and snowmobiles, and having a local depot to return their used oil has become a necessity,” said David Lawes, CEO, BC Used Oil Management Association. “Metro Vancouver worked with our team to install a conveniently located and custom-built recycling depot in North Vancouver for the responsible collection and safe storage of returned used oil and antifreeze materials.”
“Making it easier for residents to responsibly recycle potentially hazardous items free of charge is a high priority for us,” said Jack Froese, Chair of Metro Vancouver’s Zero Waste Committee. “We’re pleased to offer this convenient, environmentally friendly and free option to North Shore residents, and will continue to expand waste reduction and recycling opportunities around the region.”
BCUOMA would like to acknowledge that North Shore Recycling and Waste Centre is located on the traditional territory of the Tsleil-Waututh, Squamish, and Musqueam First Nations (Coast Salish peoples).
