How does our household get started participating in the Hefty® EnergyBag® Pilot Project?
Once you receive your 20-bag starter kit, begin collecting acceptable materials. It's that easy!
The starter kit includes a list of what’s acceptable or check the Acceptable Items tab of this website.
Also review the items that are not acceptable in Hefty® EnergyBag® Pilot Project and re-familiarize yourself with the Blue Box program to ensure that you put all recyclable plastics in the Blue Box and not in the Hefty® EnergyBag®.
As an EnviroDepot household, what does our household do once our Hefty® orange bag is full?
When the Hefty® orange bags are full, tie them securely closed and deliver them to your neighbourhood EnviroDepot.
Ask the depot attendant to direct you to the Hefty® EnergyBag® drop off bins.
Store your Hefty® orange bags until you are ready to make a trip with other acceptable items to the EnviroDepot. Don’t make a special trip.
What City of London EnviroDepot locations are participating in the London Hefty® EnergyBag® Pilot Project?
Two of the City’s four EnviroDepots will be accepting the Hefty® EnergyBag® from participating households during the pilot project.
- Oxford Street EnviroDepot - 1450 Oxford Street
- Clarke Road South EnviroDepot - 28 Clarke Road
Visit www.london.ca/envirodepot for hours of operation and the list of other items accepted at the depots.
The depots accept a wide range of materials for recycling and reuse, so before you make a trip to drop off your Hefty® orange bags we suggest become familiar with what can be taken as you many have many items around your home.
By using an EnviroDepot you will contribute to London’s waste diversion efforts and ensure that materials are recycled, reused or disposed of safely.
What if our household puts the wrong materials in the Hefty® orange bag?
While a bag containing only a few unacceptable items may not create an issue with end users, when these few items are combined with a few incorrect items from many other homes there is a negative impact of the final use of these materials.
To ensure that the contents of the Hefty® orange bags are diverted from landfill it is important to follow instructions for what can be placed in the bags. Consult the list!
