Best practices

 

  • Empty and rinse containers and bottles before putting them in the bin
  • Put mixed items in the blue bin, not in bags or boxes
  • Group bags together in one bag
  • Put shredded paper in a bag
  • Separate out different materials (for example, separate plastic caps from glass containers)
  • Remember to take items that are not recyclable but still in good condition to a second-hand store

 

How to dispose of recycling


Via municipal collection in the blue bin provided to each residential building.

There is no maximum limit on the number of items or volume of recyclable materials put out for collection.

No recyclable material should be left scattered next to the bin.
