Sorting Your Recycling Matters  Trash bag and the various recycling containers available in Niagara.

Niagara residents continue to demonstrate strong recycling habits with more than 80 per cent of households regularly using their Blue and Grey Boxes.

Participation is only the first step; properly sorting your Blue/Grey Box recyclables helps make recycling in Niagara more efficient; increases the revenue received from the sale of recyclables into the open market; and ensures that the materials collected at your curb are collected and recycled at Niagara Region’s Recycling Centre.
