 Paper labels on containers


Recycle paper container labels:

  • In your blue cart
  • At a community recycling depot

Special instructions

  • Remove paper labels from plastic containers, glass jars and food cans where possible. Recycle each item separately in your blue cart.
  • Paper labels/stickers that are not easily removed are ok to leave on container.
  • Put stickers into the black cart as garbage.

Why should I remove paper labels?
By removing labels, this helps to make the containers cleaner and more ready for being recycled into a new product. The paper labels are then also recycled into new paper products.
