Recycling

A few things to remember:

  1. Milk cartons are recyclable containers. Be sure to put them in your blue bag for containers and not in with paper products.
  2. Disposable baking trays and pie pans are recyclable aluminium containers. The metal ones you have used for years are not recyclable at the curb.
  3. Paper flyers, catalogues and ‘junk’ mail are recyclable papers. The plastic bags they may come in are not recyclable at the curb.
  4. Glass is not accepted in household recycling collection.

 

We ask That you:

  • Sort your recyclables into two types— paper products and containers.
  • Make sure everything’s clean. Rinse food containers so there’s no food left inside. It’s especially important to rinse milk cartons, as milk will go sour quickly.
  • Remove the lids and caps from your containers, and remove wrap or plastic from boxes and paper.
