Join us in celebration of us!

At the Toronto Zoo on May 16, 2019 from 5 p.m. onward to celebrate waste reduction and recycling milestones over the past 40 years, Recycling Council of Ontario and you, our valued supporter.

We are gathering friends, colleagues, and peers you haven’t seen for years, and have combed through 40 years worth of contacts for our invite list.

Staffers, Members, Directors, Funders, Regulators, Ministers of the Environment: some have more girth and less hair; most are like a fine wine that’s gotten better with time; some still in the industry; others moved on.

However, everyone has a common trait: influence on our work.

Please join us so we can make good company, share old stories, and make new memories.


A favourite phrase in recycling is that you can’t manage what you don’t measure, and appreciate you letting us know you will be joining us.

In lieu of fixed ticket pricing we kindly ask you make a donation to support our work. Since 1978 we have been Ontario’s leading charity solely dedicated to waste reduction and recycling. Protecting the environment has never been as important as it is now and the work has only just begun. Tax receipts can be issued.

Donation Amount

Spread the word

We’ve made a lot of friends of the past 40 years, and unfortunately, may have lost contact with some of them.

If you know of anyone who has ties to RCO from over the years that would be interested in attending our birthday celebration extravaganza please have them subscribe for updates so they receive an invite.

See you in May!
