RECYCLE IT RIGHT!
Help ensure more material gets recycled.
Proper sorting ensures that more of the material that is collected gets successfully recycled. Paper, glass and containers must be set out in separate collection bins/bags. Put paper in your yellow bag, containers (plastic, metal and cartons) in your blue box, and glass in your green/grey box.

When recyclables are sorted into three streams (glass, fibres, and containers), we can ensure that more of the materials that are collected are recycled, and improve the performance of your recycling program.
Learn how to correctly sort your materials using the following resources:
Please sort curbside recyclables as follows:
- Use the yellow bag for paper and packaging that held dry products (shoes, crackers, etc.). Corrugated cardboard that does not fit in this bag can be flattened, cut into pieces smaller than 30 x 30 inches (76 x 76 cm), and stacked between recycling containers.
- Use the other blue box for non-deposit containers (plastic, aluminum, steel, etc.) and paper cups and cartons (coffee cups, cartons etc.).
- Use the green box for non-deposit glass bottles and jars.
There is no limit to how much recycling you can set out. If all of your materials do not fit in your recycling boxes and bags, please try consolidating them. For example, bulky plastic jugs, cartons, and boxes can be flattened; smaller metal cans be placed inside larger metal cans; plastic containers can be fitted inside each other (e.g. yogurt containers), etc. If you have additional recyclables that do not fit into your blue boxes, these can be placed in a rigid container of your choice, such as a laundry hamper. Corrugated cardboard that does not fit in your bag can be flattened, cut into pieces no larger than 30” x 30” (78 cm x 78 cm), and stacked between your recycling containers.
