Municipalities in Ontario that have more than 5,000 residents are responsible for providing curb side collection of recyclables. Currently in Ontario there are in the region of 150 programs. Some services are provided by the local municipal government, and some services are provided by the "upper tier" or regional government (e.g. Region of Peel provides services to the residents of the Cities of Mississauga and Brampton and the Town of Caledon). If you would like to find recycling and waste management information for your specific area, please refer to the Municipal list on Stewardship Ontario's website.

Residents are also encouraged to get involved with local grassroots initiatives such as Green Communities to improve their neighbourhoods environmentally, socially and economically.

Links to recycling services, tips and facts are also given in the sidebar, as are the answers to some frequently asked questions under What should I do with..?
