It can be very confusing trying to figure out what goes into the blue box and what doesn't. I didn't realize that the plastic containers that your eggs or cherry tomatoes come in CAN NOT be put in recycling. Takeout containers and the moulded plastic trays that muffins and tarts come in are not to be put in the blue bin either. The thing is, if we don't recycle properly, the City can't recycle properly either.
For more information on what you can recycle, use WASTE WIZARD (toronto.ca/recycle) or Call 311 - the City of Toronto's hotline for information!!
