- any household items that aren’t organics or can’t be recycled.
The items that go into the grey waste cart include – any household items that aren’t organic or can’t be recycled.
Please put your waste in a bag, and then put the bag in your waste cart. Your cart will not be emptied if waste is loose in the cart.
Make sure the lids are closed tight on your carts. This is to prevent litter and odours. If the lids are open, the carts may not be emptied.
Glass items (such as jars and sauce bottles) currently cannot be recycled and therefore are considered waste. Glass drinking containers (pop, juice or beer bottles) can be returned to the bottle depot for a small refund.
