Recycling & Waste Centre Now Open

Metro Vancouver's new United Boulevard Recycling and Waste Centre is now open. Located at 995 United Boulevard in Coquitlam, this one-stop drop-off facility for recycling and waste management is more convenient for the region's residents.

The facility replaces the nearby Coquitlam Recycling and Waste Centre, which is now closed. The Coquitlam Recycling and Waste Centre is on leased land that is being redeveloped as part of the Fraser Mills community.

The United Boulevard Recycling and Waste Centre, which is three times larger than the old facility, will enhance customer experience with more room to queue safely. It has twice as many weigh scales to maximize recycling and reduction opportunities. A wide range of recyclables are accepted, including:

  • Used automotive oil, antifreeze, and oil containers
  • Batteries, electronics, and light fixtures
  • Plastic containers and bags
  • Books, magazines, and other paper
  • Clothing and textiles
  • Mattresses and box springs
  • Yard trimmings and food waste
  • Gypsum
  • Glass
  • Styrofoam

The United Boulevard Recycling and Waste Centre is open 363 days a year (closed Christmas Day and New Year's Day). For more information, please visit newwestcity.ca
