Recyclable in Your Blue Bag

The City of St. John’s offers curbside recycling collection every second week.

On your recycling days you can put out as many blue bags of recycling as you need – there is no limit. Recycling must be in see-through blue bags only; cardboard can be bagged or bundled.

Much of your household waste is recyclable – it’s not just pop cans and other deposit-return bottles!

From aluminum pie plates & trays, to margarine, yogurt and sour cream tubs, all those ‘tin’ or steel cans of soup, tuna & beans all the way to bottles that all-purpose cleaner, laundry detergent, even your shampoo & conditioner bottles are all recyclable at the curb.

Learn more items at CurbItStJohns.ca and while there sign up for notifications of your recycling day so you never miss a pick up. Watch more recycling videos on our Recycling 101 YouTube Playlist.
