WHAT TO PUT IN THE RECYCLING BIN

By putting materials that can be recycled into the recycling bin, you’re playing an important role in preserving the environment and in contributing to sustainable development in the City of Deux-Montagnes.

Remembering what goes into the bin is as easy as P-C-P:

  • Print
  • Containers
  • Packaging

PRINT

The first “P” in PCP stands for PRINT.

Printed matter on paper or cardboard must be put into the recycling bin. Flyers, newspapers, and catalogues are among the most common types of printed matter. Shredded paper must be put into a transparent bag with tie.

 

CONTAINERS

The “C” in PCP stands for CONTAINERS.

Containers are usually made of plastic, glass, or metal. All glass and metal containers go into the recycling bin. Plastic containers with the symbols

1 2 3 4 5 6 and 7

also go into the bin.

 

PACKAGING

The second “P” in PCP stands for PACKAGING.

Packaging is usually made of plastic or cardboard. For plastic packaging, make sure it has the 1 2 3 4 5 6 or 7 symbol on it before putting into the recycling bin.

Plastic bags – the most popular packaging of all – can be recycled. Just make sure to put all bags into one separate bag before recycling.
