Be recycle ready

  • Set out your blue boxes by 7 a.m on your collection day.
  • Collection continues as usual on all holidays, except for Christmas Day and Boxing Day. When these holidays fall on week days, collection will be changed.
  • There is no limit to the number of blue boxes you can set out each week. 
  • The maximum weight for each blue box is 23 kilograms (50 pounds).
  • Keep your blue boxes visible and within reach for collection staff. Please remember not to place bins behind a snowbank or parked car.
  • Place your metal, plastic, glass and carton containers loosely in your blue box.
  • Please don’t overfill your blue boxes. On windy days, remember to flatten cardboard and stack bins to prevent recyclables from getting away.
  • Use a rubber spatula to scrape out remaining food and or gently rinse containers with water. Conserve when rinsing containers: after washing dishes, use the dishwater to rinse out cans, cartons, bottles and jars.
