You & your neighbours may notice these flyers showing up on your large plastic bags if you are using them to set out your recycling! Please use our boxes & bags instead! With the federal government’s single use plastic ban coming up, it’s a great time to reduce your plastic! While we DO still pick up soft plastics (“bags in bags”) in your red box, in the future these will have to be brought to the Recycling Depot along with your flexible plastic packaging and styrofoam. Give us a call if you have questions – 604-463-5545 🙂
