New Green Bins

More plastics for Toronto Blue Bins 

Starting in June 2015, Toronto residents will be able to recycle a wider range of plastic bags in the Blue Bin. Thanks to better sorting technology, and a growing plastic recycling market, Toronto will collect bags such as those for fruit, bread, milk, dry cleaning and more. This will increase the City’s diversion rate and save money.
