Happy Holidays from Ridge Meadows Recycling!!

Metro Vancouver's "Create Memories, Not Garbage" campaign has LOTS of ideas for greening up the holidays! From gift ideas to wrapping, from decorating to leftovers, make sure you check out their website to help you prepare for (& clean up after!) the holidays.

So long, 2016!

Highlights from the past year include our Customer Satisfaction & Awareness Surveys, Summer Depot Tours, Earth Day 2016 - ENERGY!, the Plastic Free July Challenge, and more! Thanks for a great year!!

Save the Date! 

Earth Day 2017 is going “Back to Nature” and we can't wait to highlight our local nature - one of the best things about living in Maple Ridge!

One of the main ideas behind this theme is that if residents (and their kids!) get away from screens and spend more time in nature, they will learn to love it and fight to save it. This year, we are partnering with outdoor/environmental groups to organize lots of lead-up outdoor activities throughout March & April to get people outside. Activities include canoe tours, trail clearing, salmon fry release, nature printing & photography, geocaching, and family hikes.

We are looking forward to getting people outdoors to explore local parks, appreciate our community’s natural assets, and (re)discover the healing aspects of nature. The main Earth Day event, which attracts over 3000 people, will be held on Saturday, April 22, 2017 from 10am – 2pm at Memorial Peace Park.
