We launched the Recyclepedia on our website this past week. So far, the response and feedback from residents and consumers has been great! We’re happy that Manitobans are putting the tool to use in their everyday lives.
In this blog post, we’re going to expand on some of the other features of the Recyclepedia so you can use it to its full potential. Follow along for helpful hints and tricks!
Note: Please expand the instructional videos to full-screen get the best view of how to use the Recyclepedia!
This may seem straightforward for some, but if you’re unsure of how to use the Recyclepedia just type the material you’re looking for in the search bar. Click on the item, the Recyclepedia will pull the answer from the data base and it will appear in front of you!
Suggesting a Material
Our Recyclepedia knows where to put a lot of items, but there’s some things that it has to learn. If the material you’re looking for isn’t listed, you can suggest a material. We try to add suggested materials to the database at least once a week so keep it as up-to-date as possible.
To make this tool as accessible as possible, we want everyone to be able to educate themselves about recycling in their preferred language. To change the language, go to the top right-hand corner and select your preferred language. The Recyclepedia will refresh and change immediately!
Sharing the Tool
Know someone who would benefit from the Recyclepedia? Share it with them! You can share it on social media (Facebook and Twitter) or by email. Spread the word!

Lastly, don’t forget to take a look at our recycling guide. You can download, print and post it on your fridge if you want a physical copy to have on hand.
