Recycle it Right

Residential properties in Delta are entitled to receive weekly recycling collection services from the City. This collection service is funded through the annual recycling utility and there is no additional charge to participate. 

Like most cities in BC, Delta has joined Recycle BC, the not-for-profit organization that is responsible for residential packaging and paper recycling across the province. Joining Recycle BC will help ensure that we maximize the amount of material actually recycled as well as save the City, and taxpayers, money. 

To meet Recycle BC’s requirements, there are three changes to how we sort recycling:

  1. Combine newspaper and flyers with other mixed paper cardboard in the Yellow Bag or Mixed Paper Bin;
  2. Separate glass bottles and jars into the Grey Box or Grey Bin;
  3. Plastic bags and foam containers are no longer accepted in the Blue Box or Containers Bin and should be returned to your nearest recycling depots.
