Tips and tricks

Remember to rinse your containers in order to facilitate the recovery of materials. Unrinsed containers contaminate the rest of materials.

Put all plastic wraps together in a knotted transparent plastic bag, this will prevent them from flying and landing in the environment.

Biodagradable bags are neither recyclable nor compostable and goes in the black bin.

All recyclable materials must be drop loose in the green bin (not in a bag).

Returnable bottles or cans may be brought back to the store or donate to an organization.
