Happens to
my Waste?

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.
