There is no limit to how much recycling you can set out. If all of your materials do not fit in your recycling boxes, 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” (76 cm x 76 cm), and stacked between your recycling containers.
If you regularly have more recycling than your boxes can accommodate, you might want to purchase another blue recycling box, as long as the container is similar in size and shape to your existing ones. Most hardware stores carry blue boxes of different sizes. You can also purchase a new container by contacting Emterra Environmental at email@example.com or 250-992-2626.
