Commercial Collection

The City of Burnaby's garbage and recycling collection program extends beyond residential services; our crews provide collection for garbage and recycling to over 500 commercial, institutional and civic facilities. Commercial and industrial operations within the Lower Mainland account for one third of all solid waste generated and one third of recycled materials.
