Part Three: WeRecycle Material List

In this section, please find the WeRecycle Material List. The tables throughout this section provide stewards with a list of the material categories that are designated in each province.

A green check mark indicates that material is designated in that province and should be reported if the steward supplies that material to consumers. Please consult the “Examples & Reporting Tips” for further guidance on how to report each material. If you have questions about the material list, please contact Customer Relations at 1-877-667-2626 or by email at

A downloadable PDF of the WeRecycle Material List and the Program Material Lists are also available. Please visit Reporting Resources.

For more information on how the Program Plans define designated packaging and paper product, please refer to section 1.9.1 of the Guidebook. For more information on which materials you may exclude or deduct from your report, please refer to sections 2.3.1 and 2.3.2 of the Guidebook.

Stewards should refer to the definition of each material category when determining under which category their paper product or packaging should be reported.

Examples provided under each material reporting category are provided for illustrative purposes only and should not be used to definitively establish the correct reporting category.
