Blue Cart & Blue Box

Jul 05, 2023

Richmond's Blue Box and Blue Cart programs make it easy and convenient to recycle containers from metal packaging and paper products such as empty aerosol and aluminium cans, rigid plastic containers, glass bottles and glass jars, and many other household items. These recyclable materials are not permitted in the garbage.

It's important to sort our recyclable items correctly to ensure they can be sold as a commodity to help keep City utility fees down.
