Recycling Tips

• The Blue Box signals the driver to stop at your laneway. If you have a cardboard box full of flattened cardboard, please put your Blue Box out as well to signal the driver to stop.

• Put your Blue Box out for collection when it is full – or to signal driver as above.

• Save room in your Blue Box and in the recycling truck by crushing plastic bottles & retightening their lids, flattening tetra packs & tin cans, stacking plastic containers inside each other.

• Make empty recyclables the last thing you rinse in your dishwater or use them to fill empty spaces when you run your dishwasher. There is no need to use fresh hot water to rinse recyclables.

Books: donate, trade or sell. To recycle hardcover books remove the covers & spine of the book, then recycle all portions.

 

Pick-up times

The "actual" time for curbside recycling and garbage pickup may vary from week to week, therefore residents should have their recyclables and waste at the curbside by 7:00 a.m. on their scheduled day for curbside collection.

Note: Recycle pickup dates are on the same day as regular garbage pickup, and there are no interruptions during the year except when Christmas and New Year's days falls on your regular pickup day.
