A to Z Recycling List#
The A to Z Recycling List has been updated and expanded to incorporate more items, including those that can and cannot go in your curbside recycling bin. This interactive tool also includes items that can be donated or reused, rather than thrown away. Explore and share this resource to answer all your burning recycling questions!
Bring more materials to the TRC free of charge!#
Do You Know What Goes In The Recycle Bin?#
Putting the wrong things in the recycle bin can mean an entire load of recyclables gets landfilled! Incorrect items harm recycling equipment and slow down the recycling process, making recycling less efficient and more expensive.
Check out our updated Curbside Recycling Guidelines Poster for an easy to follow guide to what belongs in the bin.
Many items not accepted in curbside recycling can be recycled elsewhere. Find out more by visiting our A-Z list of where to recycle.
