Your household blue bin accepts various types of packaging and printed paper such as plastic bottles, flyers, cardboard and laundry detergent bottles. But what do you do with the other items that don’t belong in your blue bin? Here are some resources that will help you dispose of your materials in the right place.
This website was created by various stewardship organizations with a common goal in mind: to help Manitoba residents divert as much waste from landfill as possible. Recycle Manitoba helps residents find drop-off locations of where they can dispose of various items. For example, if a resident in Dauphin wanted to recycle their old electronics they could easily find where to recycle their items on the Recycle Manitoba website.
Visit RecycleManitoba.ca to find a drop-off location for your materials closest to you.
