Plastic Recycling in Jasper, AB

Once you place your approved plastics in municipal bins, the Municipality of Jasper goes to market to find buyers for our recyclables. The market is constantly changing and so is the end-of-life destination for Jasper’s waste. The Municipality of Jasper is committed to finding responsible and sustainable options for recyclables collected at our recycling stations.

Did you know?

Since the summer of 2019, Jasper’s plastic is being shipped to southern Alberta to be ground up, melted down and transformed into everyday-use items like park benches, fence posts and parking curbs. This arrangement has allowed the Municipality to accept different kinds of plastic than we did before. If the market changes, the types of plastic we accept at recycling stations will also change.

Shopping Tips

Reducing plastic usage is the most sustainable way to reduce our impact on the environment.

  • Choose items that have less plastic packaging.
  • Bring reusable checkout and produce bags.
  • Look for #1, #2 and #5 plastic when you purchase food and household items. These plastics are the easiest to recycle.
