Port Moody is recycling well - over 87% of what we put in our blue carts is correct. We’re concentrating on getting that percentage even higher, with a friendly reminder that these common items are not allowed in your recycling cart:

Recycling put into plastic bags is classified as garbage at our processing plant. That’s why it’s so important to keep all your items loose in your recycling cart. Plastic bags can also be recycled at local supermarkets.


When Styrofoam packaging is collected with other materials, it breaks down and cannot be recycled properly. Take it to a depot instead.
