Household materials should be disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly way. The collection of garbage and recycling materials is a service provided by the municipality, so each community will have a different collection system and schedule.
In general, a common garbage collection system includes the following categories:
- Blue Bin – including materials and containers like glass bottles and jars, and plastics
- Grey Bin – including paper and cardboard materials
- Green Bin – including food waste
- Garbage – most items not acceptable for blue, grey or green bin collection.
However, the collection system in each community may differ. It is important to check with your municipality.
