Logo - GREEN DEPOT (2018)

The Green Depot is a community recycling centre for UNA residents, and UBC staff, faculty and students

The Green Depot offers UNA and UBC community members with socially and environmentally responsible waste repurposing and disposal options.

Our recycling service is meant to handle items that are at the end of their usable life (except for clothing donations). For items that are still working and usable, consider donating them to local charities such as Salvation Army Thrift Stores or Free Geek (for computer products)


Hours are subject to change, please check the calendar below before dropping off items.

Without the Waste Warriors, the Green Depot would not be possible!
