Blue Sky Opportunities provides curbside recycling pick-up service for the town of Altona, and the village of Rosenfeld, as well as regular pickups at recycling depots in some surrounding communities. We also provide weekly cardboard pick-up service from local businesses. Within town of Altona limits, residential curbside pick-up of household recyclable items (not E-waste) is set up to coincide with the town's garbage collection schedule. Blue bins should be placed at the curbside by 7:30 a.m. on the morning of collection day to ensure pick-up. For information on collection dates for your area please refer to the town of Altona Collection Calendar.

We also have a Recycling Drop off Depot, which is located on the North side of our shop at 349 2nd St. NW. Anyone wishing to drop off household recyclables and/or E-waste can do so at the Drop off Depot, which is open 24/7.

If you have recently moved to Altona and do not have a blue bin, contact the Town of Altona.
