Recycling: doing it wrong

I realized that I still wasn’t up to date on what can and can’t be recycled in Toronto.

I thought it couldn’t, but it can be recycled:

  • styrofoam meat trays
  • disposable/one-use aluminum pie plates
  • shaving cream cans, but not their lids
  • the “window” parts of envelopes, and I had been separating them all this time!
I thought it could be recycled, but it can’t:
  • clear plastic containers for berries
  • clear plastic egg cartons
  • plastic cutlery
  • lids for mason jars
  • pizza boxes can, but you have to remove the parts that are stained with grease
