GLASS BOTTLES & JARS
NOTE: As the glass bin is not being emptied by GFL, the municipality has placed its own bin for glass.
Only glass Bottles & Jars! When other glass items, such as window pane glass, drinking glasses, light bulbs, ceramics and china are mixed with the bottles and jars, the load of glass becomes unuseable!!
** Please rinse out bottles and jars **
** Please remove lids **
** You do not have to remove labels **

NEWSPRINT
We welcome newspapers, flyers, magazines, catalogues, telephone books, paper back books, hard cover books, writing paper, and envelopes.

THE DON’TS !!!!
Many items are labeled with the familiar recyling symbol, however, this does not mean that it is recycleable in OUR program!!

If you turn your plastic containers upside down, you will usually find the plastic identified by a number inside the recycling symbol and /or the letters PETE or HDPE underneath it.

Some exceptions to the #2 plastic that we CANNOT accept are: Motor oil bottles, pesticide and herbicide containers, wide mouth containers like margarine, yogurt and ice cream tubs, and 20 litre pails.

REMEMBER….DO NOT DEPOSIT THESE!!
Tissues or paper towels
Drinking glasses
Window pane glass, ceramics or china
Light bulbs
Coat hangers (plastic or metal)
