Happy Thanksgiving – A Message from White Rock Mayor and Council

Happy Thanksgiving - A message from White Rock City Council

This weekend, as we all gather with family and friends, let’s be grateful for the blessings in our lives. Happy Thanksgiving from the City of White Rock.


City Hall and Facilities Closure

White Rock City Hall (15322 Buena Vista Ave.) and Engineering and Municipal Operations (877 Keil St.) will be closed on Monday Oct. 14, 2019. We will reopen on Tuesday, Oct. 15, 2019.

The City’s Recreation and Culture Facilities will be closed on Monday Oct. 14, 2019 and will reopen on Tuesday, Oct. 15, 2019.


Waste Collection Changes

There is no change in the municipal solid waste collection for the week.

Find out more about your waste collection schedule to make sure your bins are out on the right days for pickup.


Wipe It, Green Bin It

Most Metro Vancouver residents know cooking grease shouldn't be poured down the drain, but many are unaware that dairy products, salad dressings and margarine can also wreak havoc on the sewer system.

"With Thanksgiving and the busy holiday season around the corner, we hope residents will think twice about washing items like gravy, yogurt or leftover salad dressing down the drain," says Richard Stewart, Chair of Metro Vancouver's Liquid Waste Committee. "Instead, simply wipe it up or scrape it in your green bin – it’s easy, quick, and won't cause problems in the sewer system."

A dedicated website – www.wipeitgreenbinit.ca – provides a list of what can't go down the drain, how to properly dispose of fats, oils and grease, and details of recycling depots that accept larger quantities of grease and oil.
