Drop-Off Depot

(temporarily closed)

1493 Dominion Street, North Vancouver, BC V7J 1B3


Dear Drop-Off Customers,

With the global emphasis on containing the Coronavirus (COVID-19), WCS is taking additional precautions across our operations in addition to the recommendations and guidelines set up by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Government of Canada. At this time, we are closed for public drop-off of shredding and recycling.

We will continue to monitor this unique ever-evolving situation and it is our intention to re-open to the public as soon as conditions allow us to. We are committed to being proactive while we navigate the evolution of COVID-19 and will adhere to the direction of local authorities on ensuring the health and safety of all.

How it works

Our North Vancouver location is open to the public for drop-off of confidential paper shredding and used car seats for recycling. There is no need for customers to call or book an appointment ahead of time. We accept cash, debit, Visa, or MasterCard.

Secure Shredding Drop-off

The public is welcome to bring their documents for confidential shredding to our depot. Customers may stay and watch as their documents are shredded. The cost is $7 per banker’s box or $0.30 per pound. Please note that there is a minimum charge of $20 for all shredding transactions.

If you have larger volumes and do not have the resources to drop-off your documents, give us a call to arrange a one-time collection (pick up charges apply). Your paper will be picked up by our friendly drivers and securely transported to our North Shore facility where the documents will be shredded within 24 hours of being received. A certificate of destruction can be provided upon request.

Do you require weekly or monthly secure shredding collection? We also offer ongoing paper shredding services for businesses.

Car Seat Recycling

Our North Van depot accepts child car seats for recycling for a charge of $7.00 each. Please remove as much of the fabric and canvas covering as possible.

Child Car Seats

Full-sized or booster seats. $7.00 fee per car seat.

Closure of Red Bag Recycling Drop-off

Please note that as of November 2019 we will no longer be accepting residential Beyond the Blue Box/ Red Bag recycling from the public. However, we will continue to accept child car seats and paper shredding.

As many free local government depots now exist for recycling drop-off, we ask that residents utilize these facilities. The North Shore Transfer Station (2 minutes away) accepts similar materials at its Recycling Depot at no cost. To find a depot near you please search via http://metrovancouverrecycles.org/ or call the Recycling Council of BC Hotline at 604-RECYCLE (604-732-9253).

That being said, we are always open to providing information and facilitating more recycling in our community, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. Thank you so much for your support over the years!
