Solid Waste Management provides innovative waste management services to residents, businesses and visitors within the City of Toronto creating environmental sustainability, promoting diversion and maintaining a clean city.
Once again, the City's Solid Waste Management Services division is offering recycling of municipal election signs in support of its goal to divert as much waste as possible from landfill. Signs for the October 27 municipal election must be removed by end-of-day October 30. Election signs may be dropped off for recycling at six City transfer stations up until Friday, November 28, 2014. Details for how to recycle election signs are found in the letter sent to all candidates.
Ever wondered where the recycling you give the City goes and what happens to it? Here's your chance to go behind the scenes at one of Toronto's recycling facilities where all your items are sorted and prepared to go to market.
Cylinders and tanks are not collected curbside. If they can't be refilled, take them to a City Drop-off Depot for safe disposal. If you live in an apartment or condo, please check with your property manager about proper disposal. It is illegal to leave empty propane tanks in a park.
Dispose of items such as household hazardous waste, propane tanks, electronics, renovation waste, tires, etc. Garbage, recycling and yard waste can be also be dropped off — see a list of accepted items.
