Garbage & Recycling

​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.
