Waste Reduction and Recycling

My depot

How can I recycle beverage containers?

  • Remove the cap or straw before you recycle it.
  • Do not mix garbage with your recycling.
  • Wash and squash your milk containers before you recycle them.

How can I recycle electronics?

  • You can now recycle electronics for free at participating recycling depots and collection events. 
  • Collection events take place periodically in all other communities. Residents in communities without a recycling depot are encouraged to use electronics recycling depots in neighbouring larger communities.
