Have you ever wondered what happens to your curbside recycling?

In this region, recycling is collected, sorted and bundled for new markets at the Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) as part of the Robin Hood Bay Waste Management Facility.

Did you know, since introducing mandatory curbside collection and a change to clear bags for garbage, we are collecting a sustained 25-30% more recycling over previous years? We are celebrating this and other achievements during Waste Reduction Week, October 17 to 23.

Some of our partners in waste reduction include:

·        Scotia Recycling (operators of the MRF)

·        MMSB

·        EPRA (Electronic Producers Responsibility Association)

·        ESRB (Eastern Regional Services Board)

·        Habitat for Humanity ReStore

·        Home Again Furniture Bank

·        Product Care (Paint Recycling)
