Toulouse has certain rules and guidelines when it comes to waste sorting.
Whether that be plastic flasks/bottles or reusable packages (journals, books and magazines, letters) ; soda cans and other carboard items, it all goes to yellow and blue trash cans.
Recycling glass containers is mandatory in France, whether that be a bottle of beer or a smaller container. Please note that only the glass container must be recycled: a beer cap, for instance, has to be trashed separately.
Toulouse has several collect points where you can leave glass containers.
Please note: glass containers must be empty before it can be recycled.

Other types of waste such as food waste and non-recyclable items will have to be trashed separately using a tightly-sealed rubbish bag. You can dispose of these bags in the usual waste containers.
Bulky waste that clearly does not fit in a regular waste container?
You will need to dispose of bulky waste in recycling centres.
Additionally, if you cannot go to the recycling centre, AlloToulouse, a free service provided by the town hall, may be able to take care of it.
*Appointment is mandatory prior to leaving waste unattended. Leaving waste unattended without an appointment for collection is strictly prohibited.
