Frequently asked questions, B0J 1T0

Why are certain items not recyclable?

Not all the containers we consume are recyclable, even those that may seem so, that is why sometimes the local recycling center does not accept all the waste we carry. For example, while plastic bottles are the most widely recycled plastic products, not all bottles are made from the same plastic and their acceptance varies depending on the capabilities of each local recycling center.

In addition, the recycling services can reject your waste for recycling because it is dirty or contaminated since this means that it can no longer be recycled. Another reason facilities may reject materials is because of their shape, since some objects can damage the machinery, such as hooks. Other items that you cannot deposit in the recycling centers are:

  • Syringes
  • Bowling balls
  • Aerosol cans that are not empty
  • Plastic bags
  • Batteries
  • Diapers
  • Electronics
  • Ceramics
How does recycling work?

Recycling is the process by which the raw materials that make up the waste that we use daily such as paper, glass, aluminum, plastic, etc., are transformed into new materials. This prevents these wastes from entering the seas or earth. But, for this to happen, a series of steps need to be carried out:

  • At home – separate and clean waste.
  • At local recycling centers – sort, pack, and store, for later sale.
  • At processing industries – treat the materials and transform them into new products.

For a few years, the United States entered a crisis due to the accumulation of waste, which was triggered by the new waste policies of China, which was the main buyer of waste in the United States. These new policies are much stricter and among other restrictions, they lowered the minimum standards for pollutants to -1%, which excludes the majority of waste from the United States.

What types of waste can I take to the recycling centers?

To make sure we’re diverting as much waste from landfills as possible, it’s important to be aware of all the products that can be sent to your local recycling centers. There are many products that, if you separate them correctly, you can send directly to your local curbside recycling program.

Even so, as this varies depending on the capacities and facilities of the collection centers, it is always better to ask directly at your local collection center.

The products that can generally be deposited in recycling centers are:

  • Paper, newspapers, magazines, and mixed papers (As long as they are clean)
  • Bottles of plastic (almost all types)
  • Glass jars and bottles
  • Rigid plastic objects
  • Cans, aluminum, steel, and metal containers
What can you do with scrap metal?

Scrap recycling is one of the least popular in the United States even though most metals can be recycled and there are even some that have a high market value. The recycling of scrap metal is very important since by reusing metals we mitigate the exploitation of minerals, which are a limited resource, and their extraction generates a significant amount of greenhouse gasses.

Most of the waste can be left in the local recycling centers and received payment for it, in this way we avoid this waste ends up in landfills, where it would take hundreds of years to degrade.

Some of the metals that can be sold at recycling centers are copper (which is the best-valued metal on the market), aluminum, brass, lead, iron, and bronze. You can find these materials in all kinds of household waste such as; wires, pipes, kitchen sinks, food cans, soda cans, window frames, door locks, chandeliers and hinges, old jewelry, children’s toys, lamps, and tools.

Although almost most of the metals are recycled, some cannot be reused or that recycling centers do not receive, such as those used for paint or toxic products, some pipes, clothes hangers, and metal scraps, so it’s always best to check directly with your local recycling center.

Can I recycle plastic bags and film?

Plastic bags are one of the most difficult types of plastic waste to recycle, mainly because they are single-use bags and in most curbside recycling programs they are not accepted. This is a huge issue for the environment as 100 billion plastic bags are used every year in the US alone.

The best way to recycle plastic bags is to take them to local grocery stores, or big box stores like Target or Walmart, which have specific bins for this type of plastic, or you can search for plastic bag recycling locations near you at: www.plasticfilmrecycling.org

It is essential to wash and dry all plastic waste, including single-use bags, before depositing them in the recycling, because if the bags contain food scraps, or some other source of bacteria, they contaminate the entire batch in which they are deposited, and cannot be recycled.
