Please remember to dispose of your waste correctly: please put all your food scraps in your Green Cart, mixed containers, glass and cardboard into your curbside Recycling containers and take your plastic bags and foam to the Town Centre recycling depot or Coquitlam Recycling and Waste Centre (formerly Coquitlam Transfer Station). Natural Christmas trees can be disposed of in your Green Cart, at the Coquitlam Recycling and Waste Centre or you can drop them off at a tree-chipping event to support a local community group.
