Recycling The Type 6 Shipping Boxes

green-recycling-signsrecycle-type-6The shipping boxes are EPS (expanded polystyrene) which is Type 6 recyclable and 100% reusable. The recycling challenge is that many municipalities have not yet implemented curb-side Type 6 recycling.

This means that we need to take charge and here is what can be done by country.

Boxes returned to the farm will be recycled at the Elgin Mills, ON drop-off facility.

Curb-side blue box recycling is now available in:

  • City of Toronto
  • Peel Region

If you do not live within these regions, please check your local municipality for type 6 recycling. When unsupported in the curb-side blue box program, a local drop off facility normally exists. A quick call to your city should help you locate the closest drop off facility.
