Changes to Recycling

In an aim to increase efficiency, and after many operational changes and external service changes over the last few years, Housing is switching to a single-stream recycling model. This means all recyclables can now be placed in any blue recycling container, regardless of what the label currently reads. Help increase our recycling success rate and encourage better sustainability practices!
