About Blue Recycling

The Blue Box and Blue Cart recycling programs make it easy to recycle newsprint, paper products, plastic and glass containers, and tin and aluminium cans. These recyclable items are not permitted in your garbage as they are banned at the landfill. You’ll find more information on recycling, including what to put in the Blue Box or Blue Carts, where to drop off beverage containers for deposit refunds, and what you can take to the Recycling Depot using the links below.
