I just moved to a new municipality and they don't collect the same blue box materials as my old municipality. Why is that?
Municipal recycling collection programs reflect decisions made by the individual municipalities about which items are suitable for blue box collection. Differences in municipal recycling programs may be due to the distance of your municipality from markets for recyclable commodities, the recycling company your municipality contracts with, processing facilities in your area or the capacity of local landfills. Call the RCBC Recycling Hotline for information on what is included in your municipality's program.
