Never miss another collection day!
Sort your recyclables into two separate containers - Blue Box for Paper & Cardboard, and the Green Box for Plastic, Metal & Milk Containers. Place your recyclables loose into the boxes, do not bag your items. The only items that can be in bags are plastic bags & shredded paper.
Collection Day - is the same day as compost collection. A separate truck collects your recyclables, this truck is split, one side is for the Papers the other for Containers.
Not enough space for your recyclables? You can purchase additional recycling boxes at local hardware stores, or the Quispamsis Town office. Don't worry if it isn't green, you can put your containers in a "blue box" just make sure you keep your containers and papers separate.
