Curbside Glass Collection
Starting July 4, 2022, the City of New Westminster will begin collecting glass packaging in a new curbside collection program.
Each single family home will receive one 27L grey box that will accept non-refundable glass packaging, such as jam, sauce, or pickle jars. The curbside glass collection schedule will be different from the existing solid waste collection schedule, as glass requires manual collection and must be collected separately. Each collection zone (A, B, C, D) will be divided into four sub-collection zones and will receive glass collection once every four weeks on their respective collection day.
Staff will begin delivering grey boxes to each residence in June leading up to the first scheduled collection dates starting July 2022. For more information on the program, and to view the new collection schedules, please visit newwestcity.ca/glass-recycling
