The North Shore Recycling Program (NSRP) is a unique tri-municipal government agency in the Province of British Columbia that was established in 1990 when the Greater Vancouver Regional District (now called Metro Vancouver) mandated that every municipality in the region (22 municipalities) must have a residential recycling collection program (Regional Districts are very similar to counties). The three municipalities were very forward thinking in their decision to partner with one program to avoid duplication of costs and provide consistency in three municipalities that are linked by geography.

The NSRP is responsible for the planning and administration of all residential waste reduction, reuse and recycling programs for the City of North Vancouver, the District of North Vancouver and the District of West Vancouver (collectively known as the North Shore). With a total population of about 180,000 (38,000 single-family homes and 33,000 multi-family units), the recycling collection program also includes the three municipal halls and related facilities, community centers, fire stations and all public and most private schools.
