Candidates and residents with plastic or cardboard election signs are encouraged to recycle them at:

Eco Stations

In order to be recycled, signs must be taken apart.

A graphic showing how to break apart election signs for recycling.

  • Metal frames go into the scrap metal recycling bin
  • Plastic goes into the plastics recycling bin
  • Cardboard goes into the cardboard bin
  • Wooden stakes go into the garbage bin

Attendants will provide further direction as required.

Large signs must be cut into pieces no larger than 3’ x 3’ (1m x 1m).

There is no charge if the signs and frames are taken apart and recycled correctly. If the signs are not disassembled they will be classified as garbage and you will be charged regular disposal rates.
