Curbside Recycling Program Details

One-Sort Recycling Offered

Little Canada offers one-sort recycling to residents of single family and duplex dwellings. One-sort means there is no need to sort or separate items. The materials will be sorted at the recycling plant. Most customers end up recycling more due to the ease of this process. 

Residents can place all of their recyclables into their recycling cart loose, the items do not need to be bagged or separated. Please rinse out any containers, this will help reduce the odor. No need to remove labels.

Extra Recycling

If you have more recycling than will fit in your cart, you do NOT need to call the City of Little Canada to schedule this.  There is no additional cost, just break down and/or bundle the additional recycling and place it next to your recycling cart.
