Did you know that every apartment building in the Halifax is required to have a recycling program? This means bins for garbage, recyclables, organics (green cart), paper and cardboard must be available for tenants to use. Tenants are responsible for sorting waste in their units, and putting them in the proper collection bins.
Sorting your waste does make a difference.
Cereal or cracker boxes (or any boxboard packaging), ice cream containers, plastic laundry or cat litter pails are reusable and free alternatives to a purchased counter-top green bin.
Many retailers do offer mini-bins for sale in their cleaning supply aisle. These stores include (but are not limited to): WalMart, Kent, Lee Valley, Home Depot & Canadian Tire.
Sharps (i.e. needles)
If you are a building/property manager and need help setting up a program in your building please visit our business information page or call 311 to request information.
