The Blue Box Recycling Program provides curbside recycling to over 123,000 homes in the Capital Region.
To participate, have your recyclables at the curb by 7:30am on your collection day and utilize a least one CRD blue box or blue bag to indicate to the recycling truck driver the materials are intended for this program.
Note - all items accepted for recycling are banned from residential garbage.
