Residential plastic rigid packaging can be recycled for free through the provincial Recycle BC
program. In the Capital Region this is available through the curbside blue box recycling program
as well as some drop off locations.
Rigid plastic packaging includes packaging from consumer goods such as toys, toothbrushes, batteries, tools and electronics, and food, such as salads and baked goods. Many of these items are bulky and will not have a traditional recycling triangle imprinted on them. If you want to know if your plastic rigid packaging can be recycled at the curb in your blue box, please check out Recycle BC's materials list
