Recycling Collection, Processing & Storage

Recycling is an integral component of GFL’s commitment to the environment. We take recycling very seriously and provide customers with the resources to meet all requirements for their recoverable waste materials.

Recycling is critical to reducing the amount of garbage disposed of in landfills and to ensuring that scarce resources are recovered and re-used. At GFL Environmental, our recycling operations involve materials such as wood, paper, cardboard, plastic, glass, aluminum and other metals. We collect, sort and prepare these materials for market and future use as recycled material. We also process reusable organics by turning them into compost for use in soils and other land applications.

We have a track record of safely and responsibly diverting large volumes of recyclables and organic waste from entering landfills. We provide municipalities and our commercial, industrial and institutional customers with regularly scheduled collection of recyclables.

Green For Life can also provide you with the storage containers necessary to capture your recyclables for efficient collection. In some locations, we also have our own Material Recovery Facilities (MRFs) where we process recyclables into high-quality commodities. Citizen drop-off centers are also available for residents to drop-off recyclables in locations without established municipal curbside collection. Enter your address or postal or zip code into our location finder to find a facility that serves your community.
