​Residential

Throw it out

Hard plastics that are too large, too small, or odd shapes cannot be processed properly at the recycling facility. This includes items such as plastic toys, laundry baskets, DVD cases, CD cases, straws, stir sticks, plastic cutlery etc. Even if they have a recycling symbol 1-7, it cannot be recycled. Throw them out in your black cart.

Commercial

Recycle it

Depending on the type of plastic, private recycling opportunities may exist. Visit recyclinghotline.ca and search for the specific type of plastic for more information.​​​
