Municipality and Privatization

We've established a partnership with TerraCycle Canada.

To help you achieve your diversion and sustainability goals, TerraCycle Canada offers recycling solutions for difficult-to-recycle waste streams. They collect a wide range of both pre- and post-consumer waste, from cigarette butts and coffee capsules to beverage pouches, typically destined for landfills or incineration. In collaboration with Waste Connections of Canada, TerraCycle Canada expands recycling options for Waste Connections' commercial, residential, and government customers.

Homeowners will have access to a catalog of zero-waste bags, designed for specific waste types. These can be left at the curb for collection during regular weekly trash pickups. The materials gathered are recycled by TerraCycle and transformed by leading manufacturers into various products, such as shipping pallets, watering cans, park benches, and playgrounds. Discover the Waste Connections difference. Enter your location to explore residential recycling services available in your area.

How to Prepare Recyclables

We recommend you:

Check weather forecast first: If the forecast calls for high winds or rain, keep your recyclables inside until the following pickup, if possible.

Extract all packaging: Contents may include styrofoam, peanuts, plastic, bubble wrap, plastic liners, etc.

Cover loose paper: Any loose paper should be contained with heavier containers to prevent it from blowing away.

Remove plastic bags: Always place your recyclables directly in your recycling container rather than sorting into plastic bags.

Battery Disposal

Incorrect Battery Disposal Can Cause Fires

Common household items are convenient and generally safe, however, the batteries in them pose risks when disposed into regular garbage or recycling containers because of their highly flammable nature.
