Your recycling program

New regulations in New Brunswick shift the financial and operational responsibility for recycling from municipalities to the organizations that produce and sell packaging and paper.

Circular Materials is the producer responsibility organization that is responsible for implementing and managing the new extended producer responsibility recycling system in New Brunswick.

The transition to this new framework will start on November 1, 2023. During this time, there will be no changes to your collection schedule or the materials you can recycle.

Ready. Recycle. Repeat.

When you recycle, you’re making a difference. Recycling benefits all of us and our planet.
