Curbside Recycling

GFL Environmental

The City of Coquitlam does not manage curbside collection – it is a service provided free to residents by Recycle BC. Recycle BC contracts GFL Environmental (formerly Smithrite) to collect curbside recycling from single-family homes and select multi-family homes.


Curbside recycling is picked up once per week on the same day as your green cart collection and must be out for collection by 7 a.m. in A.M. zones or by 10 a.m. in P.M. zones. See the Collection Calendar to determine what zone you are in.

Missed Recycling Collection or Missing Recycling Boxes/Bags?

If your curbside recycling was not collected or you require new or additional recycling boxes and/or bags, please contact GFL Environmental directly by calling 604-529-4011 or email.
