Recycling

We know reducing the amount of waste you put into the landfill is important to you, but you don’t want it to reduce the amount of time you have to spend with your family and friends. That’s why the Town of White City provides blue bin recycling pick-up services. No sorting or bagging required! All you have to do is place your clean recyclables in your blue bin, take your bin to the curb by 7 a.m. Wednesdays (alternating with garbage pick up) and voila! You’re helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, create new jobs in the recycling and manufacturing industries, conserve natural resources like wood and water, and keep the environment healthy for generations to come.

If you find your recycling bin was trashed during recycling pick up or from the general wear and tear that comes in the rough life of a dumpster, call the Town at 306-781-2355 or fill in the 'Contact Us' form and we’ll arrange for you to get a new one. If your bin is damaged by the weather, roughhousing or as a casualty of driver training, it’s up to you to pay for a replacement.

If you have a lot of recycling, the Town will provide an additional bin for $11/month, charged to your quarterly utility bill. Just give us a call at 306-781-2355 or fill in the 'Contact Us' form and we’ll have you reducing, reusing and recycling your way to a cleaner future for all of Canada!
