ERA depots part of new HRM program to recycle BOTTLE CAPS!


We are excited to share a new PILOT project that is testing ways to recycle BOTTLE CAPS! A group of innovative Nova Scotia organizations are collecting caps to see if they can be used as a substitute for other plastic currently used in wastewater biofilters.


Remove caps from your beverage containers, household cleaners, condiments, pills, milk containers – basically any cap that is approximately 2 inches or less in diameter. Give them a quick rinse if needed. Collect the caps together in A SEPARATE BAG and drop them off at one of the participating Enviro Depots.


Please note this initiative is separate from the HRM's collection program. For more information on what can be placed in your blue bag visit www.halifax.ca/whatgoeswhere or download the free Halifax Recycles App available on Android or Apple devices.







Many of our depots are now collecting used clothing and shoes for reuse rather than sending them to the landfill. Find one close to you:
