The Mini Bin Program

The Mini Bin is a compact recycling bin that’s ideal for apartments, condos, or townhouses. It’s designed to fit almost anywhere and makes it easy to compile and carry your empty beverage containers to a larger indoor or outdoor recycling bin. When property managers sign up for Mini Bins, they are provided with as many Mini Bins as they need, as well as promotional and educational resources. If your building does not have recycling bins, we encourage you to tell your property manager about Recycle Everywhere and our Mini Bin Program.

The Single Family Dwelling Bin

The Single Family Dwelling (SFD) bin can fit almost anywhere in your home and is designed to make it easy-to-carry your recyclables from the house to the curbside recycling cart. Research has shown that recycling rates in neighbourhoods increased after the introduction of the SFD bin. If you live in a neighbourhood or community with curbside pick up, contact your municipality and ask them to distribute SFD bins in your community.

Tips for Recycling at Home

Here are some helpful tips to improve
beverage container recycling in your home:

  • Place a recycling bin right next to or near your garbage bin in your kitchen. This will make it convenient for everyone to recycle.
  • Put a reminder on the fridge that cans, cartons, juice boxes, glass bottles and plastic bottles are all recyclable.
  • Make sure your beverage containers are empty before putting them in the recycling bin. Leftover liquids can contaminate an entire cart of other recyclables.
  • Straws can stay in juice boxes when you recycle them. Just push the straw entirely into the juice box so that it won’t get lost in the process. Juice box straws are the only straws accepted for recycling—as long as they have been pushed into the juice box.
