Curbside Pickup for Homes

Fredericton’s curbside recycling program uses a two-box system.

The blue box is for:

  • All plastic containers
  • All tin, steel and aluminum food cans.
  • Plastic shopping bags
  • All refundable beverage containers (except glass)

The grey box is for:

  • Newspapers
  • Flyers
  • Magazines
  • Corrugated cardboard and boxboard
  • Phonebooks, paperback books and textbooks without windows
  • Computer paper
  • Scribblers
  • Coloured and white bond paper

What you need to know

  • The recycling truck collects each box on alternating weeks (grey, then blue, then grey, etc.)
  • Place the appropriate box for the week, full, at the curb before 7:00 a.m. on your regular garbage day.
