Call2Recycle is on a mission to keep all batteries and cellphones out of the solid waste stream and recycle them for other uses. Anyone can be part of this effort by collecting these items and taking them to a nearby participating collection site for recycling. It’s simple!   For more information on this program or for a location near you, visit www.call2recycle.ca Recycle My Cell Recycle My Cell is a national industry initiative organized by the Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association (CWTA). 
By using Recycle My Cell, you’ll be able to find a drop-off location in your area that will accept your device – cell phones, smartphones, wireless PDAs, batteries and pagers – regardless of brand or condition. And if you can’t get to one of the drop-off locations, you can send your device through the mail, free of charge! For more information on this program, visit www.recyclemycell.ca Safe Sharps Bring Back Program In March 2001, the Safe Sharps Bring Back Program was launched across Nova Scotia. Under this program, residents who generate sharps (needles, lancets) in their home can pick up a plastic 3 litre or 5 litre sharps container at their local pharmacy. When the container is full, it can be returned to the pharmacy for disposal. This is a free service. Why do we need a Safe Sharps program? Previous to this program, the public was encouraged to place their sharps in rigid plastic containers (e.g. javex bottles or juice jugs). Once plastic containers became recyclable, there were many reports of sharps ending up in the recycling stream. Since all of the recyclables are hand- sorted, the potential for a sharp puncture became a serious threat to workers. Paint Recycling Program Please note: Empty and dry paint and aerosol cans can be recycled in Cumberland County!  Please make sure that your cans are empty before placing in recycling bag. The Nova Scotia Paint Recycling Program aims to bring new life to unused paint. The province's Enviro- Depots™ accept, at no charge, latex and oil-based paints. Please return paint products in their original containers with the original labels. For the location of an Enviro-Depot™ near you, click here for details, or call the RRFB Nova Scotia Hotline toll free at 1-877-313-7732. Tires When a new tire is purchased in Nova Scotia, a one-time environmental fee is applied at the point of sale.  Retailers submit the fee to RRFB Nova Scotia to support the costs of tire collection and processing.  You can return up to four used tires at a time, to any tire retailer in the province, at no cost.  They must be off the rim and free of mud and debris. You may leave unwanted used tires at the retailer when you buy new ones! Waste Oil Recycling used oil in Nova Scotia is very easy. Any retailer who sells motor oil (e.g. service stations, hardware stores, etc.) must either accept used oil or provide a collection depot within five kilometers of their business. There is no fee for this service. If you would like information on any of these programs, please Click Here.
