They are green bin for organic waste such as food scraps, but also flowers and your pet’s pooh; blue bin for recyclable waste such as magazines, newspapers, cardboard boxes, which must be broken or crushed, and beverage bottles, the black bin is for disposing of products such as metals, glass, plastics, pieces of wood, light bulbs, Styrofoam, clothes, shoes, straws, medicine containers and bathroom waste.
The selective collection is part of the Canadian routine, but collection can be different in each province, including the amount of the fine applied.
