CRD Apartment Tote Bags
Since 2006, the CRD has distributed 39,271 free reusable recycling tote bags to apartment and condominium units in the region. The goal is to increase recycling participation and reduce contamination in multi-family buildings. Reusable recycling tote bags are available to all apartment and condominium buildings in the region, with five or more units. The bag is intended to remain in each unit, thus ensuring that the next occupant has access to the same service. Additional tote bags are still available, please email to request one.
*Important note: The information on the Apartment Tote Bag is out of date and may not comply with the current criteria for each building. Any corrections will need to be provided to the residents.
