Broken glass must be sealed inside a cardboard box, labelled 'BROKEN GLASS' and placed out at the curb with your garbage. Book broken glass for collection by calling 905-227-7771 or 1-855-227-7771 at least two working days before your regular garbage day.
Drinking Glasses (glass)
Non-bottle glass (e.g. drinking glasses) are not recyclable and must be placed in the garbage. Glass bottles and jars are pure glass and can be readily recycled into a variety of products.
Other types of glass have additives such as lead that contaminate the recycled glass. Place all other glass in the garbage.
Broken glass should be wrapped in paper, plastic or a cardboard box, marked 'broken glass' to protect collection workers. Place it at the curb with your garbage.
Make sure all glass containers are empty and rinsed. Remove metal lid and place in your Blue Box with the glass container. If the glass container has a small plastic lid, remove and discard in regular garbage.
Reusable Drinking Cups (plastic)
Reusable drinking cups made from plastic are recyclable. Place this item in your Blue Box.
Construction, renovation or demolition materials are NOT collected at the curb and must be taken to a Landfill Site for disposal.
Reusable construction and renovation materials can also be donated to Habitat for Humanity's ReStore at 150 Bunting Road in St. Catharines. Call the ReStore at 905-685-7365 to check if your materials are acceptable.
