6 Pack Holders: Recyclable or Not?

Let's use the 4Rs to talk about 6 Pack Holders. 
6 pack holder: recyclable or not?
Avoid 6 pack holders entirely by buying in bulk!

Donate them to The Reuse Centre or make a craft yourself. Check out the full list of items accepted at the Reuse Centre.

No, they do not belong in your Blue Bag or Blue Bin in Edmonton. Put them in the garbage, they will travel to the Edmonton Waste Management Centre and then to the landfill in Ryley, AB.

Starting in 2015 - when you put them in your garbage they will be turned into Biofuels along with other carbon based waste.

  1. Thanks for this post. I think that it's great that you have such a great recyclers initiative here. I haven't seen something like this since I was in Edmonton.
