Blue Box Recycling

Recycling is collected in blue boxes weekly in all municipalities. There's no limit to the amount of recyclables that can be placed at the curb.

Please place your blue boxes curbside by 7:00 am on your collection day.

Two-Stream Recycling

We use a two-stream recycling system:  

  • Containers made of metal, glass, and plastic go into one blue box
  • Paper products and packaging goes into another blue box

Two blue boxes per household are available free of charge; additional blue boxes can be purchased for $10 each at our waste facilities

Dear Recycler Sticker

My blue bins weren’t collected, what should I do?

Collection crews place stickers on uncollected blue boxes to explain the main reasons for materials being left behind. 

If your items were out on the curb by 7:00 am, sorted properly and in a safely accessible area but your collection was missed, please contact us
