Recycling and Disposal Cost Estimator

Metro Vancouver's Recycling and Disposal Cost Estimator is now available at Recycling and Disposal Cost Estimator.

The Recycling and Disposal Cost Estimator arose as an action out of the illegal dumping workshop with the REAC Solid Waste Subcommittee and Municipal Waste Reduction Coordinators Committee in July 2021. Metro Vancouver developed the Recycling and Disposal Cost Estimator to help customers understand the cost of recycling and disposal at Metro Vancouver recycling and waste centres.
