winter collector with recycle bags

Ice and snow are serious safety hazards for recycling collectors, who pick up every blue bag by hand. Please do your part to keep them safe.

  • Clear ice and snow from your collection area. Please add sand if it is not possible to clear ice. This helps prevent painful slips and falls.  
  • Keep recycling easy to reach. Place it close to the road or alley and avoid setting it on top of or behind snowbanks.
