Gurmat Center Recycling (GCR)

We are currently not accepting any recycling at Gurmat Center. Instead, go to your nearest recycling depot and do the following: 

  1. Express Kiosk - At the recycling depot, make your way to the express kiosk screen. 
  2. Login Information - Enter Gurmat Center's phone number: 604-855-0020. Confirm the organisation: SBVSSS (this is the parent organisation). 
  3. Labelling Bags - Select the number of recycling bags and print stickers accordingly. Paste the stickers on your recycling bags and place in express recycling bin. 


  • Only use transparent recycling bags. 
  • A maximum of 6 recycling bags can be donated every day (per family). 
  • No alcohol bottles, soap/detergent jugs, or milk jugs/bottles (regular, almond, soy, etc.).
  • Staff will sort your recycling. 

This initiative is aimed to raise funds for the Langar 4 Hunger program. Families are encouraged to bring their recycling to Gurmat Center so it can be organized and recycled on their behalf. We will be collecting beverage containers and returning them to the recycling depot for a refund. Please support this program by bringing your empty beverage containers to the GC basement stairs. Reasons for supporting this program:
