What
Happens to
my Waste?

The Orange Drop program safely manages four 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 are reprocessed, refurbished or reused to make new products—easing the demand for energy and virgin resources.

About Us

The four materials in the Orange Drop program are managed by Stewardship Ontario (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.

Orange Drop no longer responsible for single-use batteries
Blog Post

June 30, 2020 - As of June 30, 2020, Orange Drop is no longer responsible for the management of single-use batteries. The program has transferred over to an individual producer model, as per direction from the Minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks. For more information on the new program and how to safely dispose of your batteries, please visit: https://rpra.ca/programs/batteries/. Please remember that batteries are dangerous if put in your recycling bin and should always be returned to a drop-off location.
