Garbage and 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, plastics, paper and cardboard.
  • Green Bin – including organic materials such as food waste.
  • Garbage – most items not acceptable for blue, or green bin collection.

However, the collection system in each community may differ. It is important to check with your municipality.
