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.


Wind up of the Municipal Hazardous or Special Waste (MHSW) Program
Blog Post

February 27, 2019 - On April 12, 2018, the Minister of the Environment and Climate Change issued direction to Stewardship Ontario to wind up the Municipal Hazardous or Special Waste (MHSW) Program by December 31, 2020. Upon wind up, materials collected under the MHSW Program will be managed according to an individual producer responsibility (IPR) framework under the Resource Recovery and Circular Economy Act, 2016. On December 11, 2018, the Minister of the Environment, Conservation and Parks amended the timelines for the wind up of single-use batteries. The waste diversion program for single-use batteries will now cease operation on June 30, 2020, to allow for coordination with waste electrical and electronic equipment. Programs for other MHSW materials will continue to cease operation on December 31, 2020. Stewardship Ontario is developing the MHSW Wind Up Plan for submission to the Resource Productivity and Recovery Authority (the Authority) by June 30, 2019. The Authority will then consult with stakeholders on the contents of the submitted plan and it is anticipated the Authority will approve the plan no later than December 31, 2019.
