The City of Markham collects blue box material every week on your regular collection day. Put clean materials in your blue box loosely. Don't put them in bags.
You need to put your blue box at your curb by 7 AM on your collection day. Or, you can put it at the curb after 7 PM the night before.
Do not place these items in your blue box; bins containing these items will be left behind. Single-use masks, gloves and wipes continue to be placed in curbside blue boxes and eventually into the material sorting facility through the recycling trucks. This has resulted in health and safety concerns for both collectors and the processing staff who manually pick the gloves and masks off the sorting line.
Let’s all do our part to stay safe!
