Many municipalities provide blue boxes or bags to their residents, provided that the recycling pick-up service is provided by your city. Many multi-family complexes receive pick-up from a private contractor due to different property tax structures. To receive a new recycling bin through the city, it would be best to contact your local city office or to pick up a bin at a designated location in your community. Also, some municipalities employ single-stream collection and the use of clear blue bags. These bags can be purchased at most hardware and grocery stores. If you are unable to find the correct number for your area, please contact the RCBC Recycling Hotline for assistance.
