About Stewardship Ontario and Automotive Materials Stewardship

The five materials in the Orange Drop program are managed by Stewardship Ontario (batteries & pressurized containers) and Automotive Materials Stewardship (antifreeze, oil containers and oil filters).

Stewardship Ontario and Automotive Materials Stewardship are both not-for-profit organizations funded and governed by the industries that are the brand owners, first importers or franchisors of the products and packaging materials managed under our recycling programs.

At Orange Drop, we strive to find new ways to turn today’s waste into tomorrow’s consumer products. As a recycling company, it is our social responsibility to drive the future of recovery, collection and recycling initiatives in Ontario. It is not enough for us to concentrate our energies exclusively on collecting and sorting paper, packaging and hazardous or special waste. We must also facilitate recycling partnerships. It’s why we do everything we can to ensure that the materials collected under our programs are transformed into new products right here in Ontario.

By taking this systemic view, we close the loop, the supply chain becomes circular instead of linear and, in the process, we create new green economy jobs. We also develop valuable business opportunities that benefit our province and our country, and we lower the cost of recycling for all involved. Plus, we conserve resources, reduce Ontario’s carbon emissions, cut toxicity and improve the health of our citizens.

WHO PAYS FOR THE PROGRAMS?

Stewardship Ontario and Automotive Materials Stewardship collect fees from Industry Stewards—the companies that the brand owners, first importers or franchisors of the products and packaging materials that end up in curbside Blue Boxes or that are classified as household hazardous or special waste. These fees help to fund the costs of collecting, transporting, recycling and safely disposing of waste across the province. Stewards are fully responsible for the Orange Drop Program.

WHILE WE’RE ON THE SUBJECT…

What
Happens to
my Waste?

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