Where to Buy Recycling, Organics and Composting Containers

Consider using an alternative container for recycling and organics. Many container distribution locations remain closed due to COVID-19. Call distribution centres ahead of time before planning a visit.

New residents can pick-up free recycling containers

New homeowners and new renters of single family homes or buildings with up to six residential units (low-density residential properties) are entitled to obtain one free Blue Box, Grey Box, Kitchen Catcher and Green Bin if they don't have them already.

To pick up free containers, visit any location below within 12 months of the possession date or occupancy of your residence by:

  • Presenting a copy of your transfer deed as evidence of the possession date of your home; or
  • Presenting a rental or lease agreement as evidence of your occupancy date

Free containers are only available to the owner or renter of the single family home or building with up to six residential units (low-density residential property) listed on the transfer deed, rental or lease agreement, or other related documentation that clearly identifies the resident's name, address and occupancy date. Distribution locations may ask to see a second piece of identification to confirm eligibility.
