What items go where?

Recycling changes in effect

As of September 10, only blue bags with correctly sorted items will be picked up.

If your blue bag isn’t picked up, don’t worry! Look for the sticker – it will note what needs to be removed or changed. Once you’ve done so, your bag can go out for collection the following week.

Waste sorting changes came into effect on June 6. Thank you for working with us over the past few months.

We understand that change takes time. Learn more about the recycling changes and Green Routine 2.0.
