Norfolk County ‘Simple Sort’ Recycles

Norfolk County recycles uses the 2-box ‘Simple Sort’ system. Instead of putting all of our recyclables in or beside a recycling box, residents must separate recyclables into two boxes.

Use the small recycling box you already have (blue or black doesn’t matter) for paper products such as newspapers and magazines, paper packaging such as boxboard cartons for cereal and tissues and the bag of plastic bags.
