Don’t Break the Cycle – Recycle Right!

Being an expert recycler is within your grasp! Here are some helpful tips to make sure all your recyclables travel through the recycling system with ease and get repurposed into a new material.

Recycle Right

  • Always ensure the right materials are being sorted and separated. Not sure what goes where? Check your municipality’s website for guidance.
  • Hazardous waste, such as propane cylinders and batteries, are dangerous if put in your recycling container. Visit MakeTheDrop.ca to find a safe disposal drop-off location near you.
  • Don’t put organics and food scraps in your recycling container – they can contaminate your clean recyclables!
  • Don’t bag your recyclables. Let them go loose in your blue bin.
  • Keep a recycling container in different rooms around the house to encourage recycling everywhere!

Recycle Clean

  • Take a second to rinse out all your containers before placing them in the recycling bin. That includes, jars, jugs, cans, cartons, bottles etc.
  • Clean, dry paper is best for recycling. Remove any food or product residue before placing paper in recycling.

Recycle by Season

Holidays are a special time, but these materials should never go in your recycling container:

  • Holiday decorations and lights – they get tangled up and halt operations.
  • Pumpkins, candy and chip wrappers.
  • Flowers and the crinkly plastic they come in.
  • Toys and games – donate them instead!
  • Ribbons, bows and foil gift wrap – paper gift wrap is okay!
