Where to drop off your hazardous materials

There are many drop sites throughout Ontario accepting hazardous or special waste:

  • 200 return-to-retail locations (batteries)
  • 87 municipal household hazardous waste depots
  • Over 2,500 battery drop-off locations
  • 85 provincial parks where non-refillable propane cylinders are collected from campers
  • Nearly 600 automotive DIY drop-off sites (antifreeze, oil containers and oil filters)
  • 10,000 + automotive service centre locations (antifreeze, oil containers and oil filters) for commercial users
  • 300 + annual collection events

 

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.

About Us

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.
