Default Blue/Black Bins

For any/all of you who are moving into a home or have been buying blue/black bins; I thought this may be of interest.

If you are new to Ottawa or your boxes are missing or stolen, please call 3-1-1 for a coupon to redeem at any Canadian Tire store in Ottawa to get your boxes.

When returning a brokenor damaged green bin or recycling box to Canadian Tire, please ensure the container is completely empty of waste and properly cleaned out.

Thanks for posting.

Somebody ran over my green bin earlier this week. I called 3-1-1 and was told a city staff would come out and give me a new bin. It has been 3 business days and nobody has showed up yet.

I wonder whether I should bring the damaged bin to Canadian Tire and swap it with a new green bin instead?

They may exchange it but I doubt it. You can also e-mail 311@ottawa.ca and they reply within a day usually. I got my coupons in about 4 days from when they replied to my e-mail.

Call back. We had the same problem after the sidewalk plow ran over ours this winter. We called and were told that we'd get a green bin in a few days. When we called back a week later they had no history of our call, but sent a new bin the next day.

For new homeowners who live in an appt building, i called today to get the coupons so that I can get all the necessary stuff the week that we are in but they said we had to be living in our new residence.

Just an FYI.

Is the coupon for free bins or just a discount? If it is just a discount I'm inclined to bring our current bins with us when we move.

No the coupon would give you the green bin for free. I do understand your point as the bin itself costs $40 + tax.

I wouldn't be too happy moving into a resale house and not seeing the recycling bins (black, blue, and green) in the garage. I don't think you are obliged to leave them behind but it's a nice gesture

Plus you can get a new green bin and start fresh i.e. why carry the smelly bin over to the new place?
