EcoGeneration Accepted Materials

EcoGeneration collects and ethically recycles within several streams of waste, and add new recycling streams as they open up to us. The material that we can accept currently is listed below.

Items should be sorted by number (#1, #2, #4, #5, #7) and category (see below), and will be accepted in any type of bags - provided all items are CLEAN and DRY with labels removed. Check below for exceptions to label removal.

For up-to-date activities, tips and news, and recycling questions; please join the Recycling with EcoGeneration Facebook group.

Update: #2/4/5 materials are now recycled through a facility that is able to sort plastics by color. This allows for the materials to be used again and also increases the chances of the plastic being recycled again as the materials are not all dyed black.
