Since our last post, in which we pointed you to Rona as a great drop-off point for old paint, we came across a fantastic site that will help you clear your garage of everything hazardous – from aerosol containers, oil filters and antifreeze to gas canisters, batteries, pesticides and more.
Orange Drop is a Stewardship Ontario initiative that helps Ontarians recycle way beyond the Blue and Green Bin, and their site is really user-friendly.
Here’s what we suggest. Head out to your garage now with pen and paper in hand. Write a list of any hazardous items you’ve been meaning to dispose of. Then go directly to www.makethedrop.ca.
Once you’re there:
- Click on the button that reads “Where do I go to make the drop?”
- Enter your postal code in the space provided.
- Use the drop-down menu to select the waste category of the first item on your list.
- Browse the results page and choose the most convenient location for drop-off.
It’s that simple, so no more excuses. Clear out your garage day. Your car will thank you!
