• Plastics are approximately 17% of Capilano U's waste currently being sent to a landfill.

      Clean, hard and soft plastics are collected from within our Food Services and other North Vancouver campus area/departments and picked up by Smithrite for recycling  on a weekly basis. This program will be expanded for the Fall 2012 Semester. 

      There is centralized collection between the Birch and Arbutus Bldgs - campus community members are encouraged to drop their CLEAN hard and soft plastics into the designated bins or email Shipping & Receiving for pick up.

      If you have any questions contact  Shipping & Receiving or email Sustainability.

      Remember... as with all recycling programs putting the correct item into the correct bin makes a HUGE difference to the success of the program.  So.... if in doubt... keep it out!
