The Kahnawà:ke Waste Management Department would like to remind residents of the need to follow the ‘acceptable materials’ guidelines for items deposited in the 360L recycling bins and to be sure recycling materials are cleaned and free of food to avoid attracting rodents while in storage.

Only items described in the list of ‘acceptable materials’ should be placed in the 360L bins:

  • Glass Bottles & Jars
  • Metal Cans & Containers
  • Plastic Containers
  • Plastic Bags (wrapped together)
  • Milk & Juice Cartons

Acceptable materials for the bi-weekly Special Collection (placed beside the 360L bin) include:
  • Refundable Bottles and Cans
  • Cardboard Boxes (packing boxes and clean pizza boxes)
  • Metal
  • Electronics
  • Used Batteries
  • Household Hazardous Waste (paint cans, chemicals, etc)
