Most schools supply small collection containers for each classroom that can be emptied by students or staff on a weekly basis into carts kept in a central collection area. Blue boxes for collecting classroom recyclables can be purchased from the North Shore Recycling Program or from your local hardware store. Contact us for information about purchasing blue boxes. You may also contact us for signs and/or support with signs at collection points throughout your school.
Place mixed paper in your mixed paper cart and place out as early as possible on collection day. Service time is between 9:00am and 3:00pm. For details on what is included in mixed paper collection, click here.
Place mixed containers out on collection day in a securely-tied clear plastic bag next to your mixed paper carts. For details on what is included in mixed container collection, click here.
Contact us for signage for use in your school.
