RPRA Recycling

RPRA (Resource Productivity and Recovery Authority) – Recycling Program – Find a Location

Do you have used batteries in a drawer at home and you’re not sure how or where to recycle them? What about old paint cans?
RPRA’s new Where to Recycle map displays locations across Ontario where you can drop off used materials to be recycled, such as batteries, electronics, household hazardous waste (e.g., paint, antifreeze, pesticides), lighting and tires, for free.

Explore the map by clicking the button below or accessing it under “Learn” on RPRA’s website -  https://rpra.ca/where-to-recycle/

With more than 2,000 publicly accessible recycling locations across Ontario, the Where to Recycle map makes it easy for you to find one nearby. Filter by your location, the distance you’re willing to travel, and/or the material you want to recycle to find your best option.
In Ontario, the businesses that produce or supply batteries, electronics, household hazardous waste, lighting and tires are legally required to provide locations for the public to drop off used materials. They are also required to reuse, refurbish, recycle, or properly dispose of those materials to help keep them out of landfill, recover valuable resources and protect our environment.
RPRA is responsible for ensuring those businesses are properly collecting and recycling their materials across the province.
