Apartment/Condo Shared Recycling

Delta Multi-Family Recycling

Residents who live in apartments or condos and have shared recycling areas with large recycling bins are part of Delta's shared recycling program. View a copy of our Recycling Guide here.

Live in a townhome? Check with your strata to see if you are part of the Shared Recycling or Blue Box program.


Shared recycling is collected every week on the following days:

Mondays: complexes in Ladner
Wednesdays: complexes in Tsawwassen
Thursdays: complexes in North Delta

Following a statutory holiday, multi-family shared recycling collection will be delayed by one day for the remainder of that week only; regular collection days will resume the following week. For example: if Monday is a statutory holiday, Monday collection will be moved to Tuesday, Wednesday collection will be moved to Thursday, and Thursday collection will be moved to Friday.


Recycling bins are provided by Delta as part of Delta's multi-family shared recycling program. Each complex has a minimum of three bins: one for Mixed Paper, one for Containers and one for Newspaper. Material must be sorted properly for collection. Complexes are responsible for ensuring material is sorted and for cleaning bins as needed.


There is no limit to the amount of accepted material collected for recycling. All material must be sorted and contained in the appropriate recycling bin for collection. To request additional bins, contact Delta's Engineering Department at 604-946-3260 or engineering@delta.ca

If you have large amounts of recyclable items that will not fit in your recycling bins you can drop them off for free at various locations in Delta. Visit the Take Back for Recycling page for the closest location.
