Plastics can be divided into sorted containers, which pay a return deposit fee, and plastics that pay no return deposit fee. Examples of plastics that pay no return deposit fee include garden chairs, laundry baskets and snow sleds. These kinds of plastics need to be taken to Sorpa recycling centers (or the corresponding facility in your community) — unless they fit in your plastics recycling bin.
Used plastic containers must be cleaned and dried before placing in the plastics recycling bin. Otherwise the item is removed when it reaches the recycling center and rerouted to a landfill. That is why we always encourage people to sort and make sure their plastics are both clean and dry.
