Foam Containers and Pellets

  • All types of polystyrene (resin code #6) used for packaging can be recycled.
  • Place packaging in clear bags and set it in your garbage/recycling area for collection by the caretaking staff who will take it to a centralized location for pick up by the recycling staff.
  • Please note that any soft foam packaging labeled other than "6" should not be mixed with polystyrene. This can be bagged separately and recycled as plastic.
  • Please call Recycling and Waste Management at 416-946-5711 for bags and to arrange a pick up.
