Winnipeg is a great city with many things going for it. There are countless outdoor spaces for Winnipeggers to get out and enjoy the warm summer season. You may have noticed “Recycle Everywhere” bins popping up all around the city. These are a great way to encourage people to recycle used beverage containers (after all, it is hot out there!) and to keep our city clean. But what are you supposed to do with your household recyclables?
In the city of Winnipeg blue curbside recycling bins are used for the collection of household recycling materials. This includes items like:
- food and beverage containers
- plastic containers
- plastic packaging
- newspapers, flyers and other mail
- cardboard boxes and cartons
All these items can be left in your curbside bin to be picked up by the city of Winnipeg crew, or you can drop them off yourself at one of the four recycling depots in the city.
Winnipeg community recycling depots
Recycling depots are located throughout the city of Winnipeg. You can drop off your household recyclables 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year.

The second R – Reuse
There are many great locations across the city to drop off items that you no longer need and are still in usable condition. For example, living room furniture, pots and pans, cutlery and cooking utensils, bedroom furniture, and small or large appliances. Organizations like Flavie-Laurent Center accept donations of usable home goods.
