As the winter winds cease to blow this time of year, occasionally many residents find themselves missing their blue or black box or green bin.
Please note that if you have a damaged or broken recycling box or green bin, you can request a replacement by calling 3-1-1. Extra bins are available for sale at Canadian Tire
Similarly, if you have recently moved and containers are missing from your new property, you can request coupons for replacement bins. Coupons can be redeemed at any Ottawa Canadian Tire. Please use the following to request coupons:
- Coupon for new Blue Recycling Box
- Coupon for new Black Recycling Box
- Coupon for new Kitchen Container
- Coupon for new Green Bin (80L)
- Coupon for all New Bins (blue and black recycling boxes, green bin, kitchen container)
Please use the City of Ottawa green bin for organics collection. The bins have been specially designed and tested and are fitted for pick up by an automatic lifter on the collection vehicles.
I hope that many of you find this information useful and that it helps relieve some stress in ensuring that recycling remains an everyday part of your life.
