Given the current situation, many recycling locations have temporarily closed and we expect more to follow. To help minimize landfill waste we encourage you to store your recycling items until the COVID-19 pandemic has passed. Please do not throw your recyclables in the trash. If you need to visit a depot, contact them directly to confirm if they’re open. Social distancing is strongly recommended, as is staying home.
