Packing tips

Please note that the Community Recycling Depots ONLY accept blue cart items. The 4R Winnipeg Depots accept a wide range of items.

Your 4R Winnipeg Depot experience starts at home. The way you pack your vehicle/trailer can make dropping off your materials easier.

  • Pack similar materials together in your vehicle/trailer.
  • Pack your vehicle/trailer so the materials you drop off first are easily accessible.
  • The materials you pack last will be dropped off first.
Here is the order we recommend you pack materials into your vehicle:
First: Garbage (available at the Brady 4R Winnipeg Depot only)
Second: Scrap metal, lumber, tires, rubble, ceramics, large plastic items
Third: Soil, clean fill, tree wood waste, leaf and yard waste, major appliances, bicycles
Fourth: Blue cart recyclables
Last: Household hazardous waste, paint, electronic waste, batteries, oil products
You may bring your materials in any off the following vehicles/attachments:
  • Cars
  • Pickup trucks
  • Vans
  • Single axle utility trailers (self-dumping trailers must be unloaded manually)
