Curbside Recycling

One Can Make a DifferenceRecycle.  One can make a difference!

Collection of recyclables at the curb takes place every other week on your regular recycling day. Check your Waste Collection Schedule for your scheduled recycling days.

Place recyclables in clear, see-through plastic bags. If possible, position recyclables five feet away from your regular garbage at the curb. Garbage is collected by the City of Thunder Bay's Roads Division, and recyclables are picked up by Recool Canada Inc.

Recycling is as Easy as . . .

1. Paper Products - newspapers, flyers, junk mail, magazines, soft-cover books, fine paper, paper egg cartons, etc.

2. Cardboard - cereal boxes, shoe boxes, clean delivery boxes, etc.

3. Containers - pop cans, milk cartons, juice boxes, metal cans, glass bottles & jars, plastic bottles #1 & #2 with long necks and twist-off tops, e.g., drink bottles, soap bottles.
