In 2015-2016, Metro Vancouver conducted preliminary work including concept designs, geotechnical work, and odour and traffic assessments. In 2017 Metro Vancouver developed a detailed facility design considering input from municipal and commercial facility users. Construction is progressing and the recycling and waste centre will open in Spring 2021.
Public Engagement and Consultation
Metro Vancouver is committed to engaging neighbouring businesses and interested residents to ensure the facility fits in with the community, and to maximize benefits for facility users. As part of this commitment, Metro Vancouver will engage with interested parties throughout the project.
On February 15, 2018, Metro Vancouver hosted an open house for neighbouring businesses, interested residents, facility users and municipalities to learn more about the project, facility design and construction timeline. Feedback from the open house was summarized and provided to the City of Coquitlam as part of the development permit approval process.
