Reusable shopping bag program

Reusable shopping bags can be dropped off at the Vancouver Zero Waste Centre and will be provided to residents in need.

Many residents have accumulated excess reusable bags over time, while other residents may not have enough bags for daily use.

Sharing the abundance of existing bags with each other is the most environmentally friendly option for reducing waste and avoiding bag fees.

Residents can donate reusable shopping bags at the Vancouver Zero Waste Centre. Donated bags will be made available to residents with low incomes and people experiencing homelessness.
