The Orange Drop program safely manages nine materials to end-of-life, diverting harmful substances from landfill and waterways. Many of the materials collected through the Orange Drop Program, such as paints, pressurized containers and batteries are reprocessed, refurbished or reused to make new products—easing the demand for energy and virgin resources.

We’re a not-for-profit organization funded and governed by the industries that are the brand owners, first importers or manufacturers of the products and packaging materials managed under our recycling programs. We operate the Blue Box curbside recycling program for printed paper and packaging and the Orange Drop recycling and safe disposal program for hazardous or special waste.
When you take your Orange Drop materials to a drop-off location you’re helping give new life to old products. You’re also disposing of potentially harmful items correctly to avoid soil contamination, water pollution and health risks.
