Keep using that blue box – and learn what shouldn’t go in


Just taking a few extra minutes to sort your trash can make a big difference. Think of it as an investment in the health of our environment. And the benefits will last generations – because some of the products we use will sit for hundreds of years in a landfill.

Recycle your electronics

 It can seem complicated to know what goes where, but there is help. Visit stewardshipontario.ca to find out what you can recycle in your community and makethedrop.ca to learn how to safely dispose of things like old batteries and leftover paint.

Retire your tires safely


Visit recycleyourelectronics.ca to find out how you can recycle your old electronics. They gather dust in drawers or in the basement – but these devices contain valuable metals and can be refurbished or recycled.

Up to four tires can be dropped off free of charge at sites across Ontario. Visit greenmytires.ca to find out where to go, and how your old wheels can be recycled into a host of green products for homes, roads and playgrounds.
