New Plastics Added to Blue Bin

From the City of Toronto web site:

New developments spearheaded by the Canadian grocery retail industry, along with advancements in recycling and sorting technology, have removed the obstacles to recycling these plastic materials such as 'clamshell' containers, clear fruit and vegetables containers, etc.

You can now recycle items such as:

  • Clamshell containers (hinged, clear plastic containers used for food items such as berries and take-out)
  • Clear fruit and vegetable containers
  • Clear take-out food containers
  • Moulded bakery item trays
  • Plastic plates and glasses
  • Egg cartons
  • Cold beverage cups/lids
  • Compact disk cases (empty)
