    I don’t see anything about recycling plastic bags. WInnipeg used to collect them but no longer. Safeway grocery stores are the only places in the city, as far as I know, that collect and recycle plastic bags. I hope they continue to do this.

      Thank you for your concern. We currently do not have a partnership in place to accept plastic bags at the 4R Winnipeg Depots, however many retailers now have plastic bag take-back programs, which helps to keep them out of the landfill and reduces the need to produce more.

    When will we be able to put all metal and all plastic into blue bins? Most know to sell valuable metals such as copper etc to metal companies but small amounts of steel or iron (no sale value) should be recycled and not put into black bins as now.
    Also the UK collects vegetable waste in small green containers and composts it. It is collected bi weekly with normal recycling and could easily be done here to stop it going into black bins. Not everyone has a garden and even of those who do, not everyone runs a compost bin.

      Thanks for your concerns. Unfortunately, only items that can be sorted at our automated Materials Recovery Facility can be accepted in our blue cart program. Items that we cannot accept in our curbside program, such as scrap metal and oversized plastics, will be accepted for recycling at the 4R Winnipeg Depots.

      As for kitchen organics, we are currently developing an Organics Diversion Strategy, which will look at all types of organic material that arrive at Brady Road Resource Management Facility. More information on the Organics Diversion Strategy, including updates, can be found here.

    is there any difference between this depot and the Miller Environmental on Oak point road?

    • admin says:

      Miller Environmental’s depot is for household hazardous waste and e-waste. The 4R Winnipeg Depots will accept household hazardous waste and e-waste, as well as other items that can be recycled, reused, composted, or resold, such as tires, appliances, scrap metal, bicycles, rubble, and yard waste. A full list of materials that will be accepted at the 4R Winnipeg Depots is available here.
