Blue Box & Recycling

Blue Box



Blue boxes are now available for pick-up at the Municipal Service Centres and at City Hall. They are still not available for pick up at Recreation Centres.

Put your recycling in:

  • A blue box provided by the City of Hamilton.
  • Any size blue box as long as it weighs less than 13 kg (30 lbs).
  • A securely tied non-returnable clear or translucent plastic bag.
  • You can put a lid on your blue box so your stuff doesn’t blow away.

How to get another blue box

If you need another blue box, there is no charge to pick one up. You must bring identification with you to get a blue box.
