Recycling Tips

Recycling is Free -- Garbage Costs

Dear Resident,

As of July 1, 2008, buildings in Toronto have been required to pay a fee for garbage collection based on how much garbage is set out by building residents. As a resident of Polo II, you have an important role to play in the effectiveness of our building’s recycling program, and in avoiding the $50,000 per year excess garbage levy.

The more recycling, the less garbage

The less garbage, the lower the fee

There is no cost or limit on the amount of recycling that can be set out for collection, so please – recycle everything that’s recyclable. Your efforts will help save on costs, and keep our maintenance fees and rents low.

To find out what is accepted under the recycling program, please review a Toronto Recycles info card available at, or review the new posters in the garbage chute rooms. It’s important to put only proper materials in the recycling containers because if garbage is mixed with recycling these contaminated loads cannot be recycled.

If you have any questions about the recycling program, please contact building management.

Thank you for participating! Together we can make a difference.
