This summer we’ll be visiting communities across Ontario bringing our Orange Drop education program to you. Watch for us, or check back here for a list of our dates.

You can also tour our Virtual House to learn more about what you can recycle in your home and where you can return it in your community.

Follow us on Facebook, Youtube and Twitter by simply entering “stewardship ontario” – to learn about our community activities, collection events, education tours and for updated videos and information about the Blue Box and Orange Drop programs.

About the Tour

It’s necessary for consumers to be engaged and involved in the Orange Drop program for it to be a success. So we’re going to spend three months – July, August and September – visiting communities all across the Province to engage in conversations about how to create a recycling program that works. Although we’ve already put a lot of thought into Orange Drop, and we’re working with many different stakeholders, consumers play a key role in making recycling successful – We have targets for collection and stewards fund the program but YOU return all of the materials that gets recycled!

Ever since Kitchener invented the first ever Blue Box program in 1981, Ontario has been a leader in recycling, and we can do it again with Orange Drop. Blue Box started small and grew into a global phenomenon. Orange Drop has a solid foundation of partners, and now it’s time to expand and improve, and we need your help. We know it may not be as convenient as the Blue Box that you carry to the curb but we believe that together we can make the effort that is requred to make it just as successful.

We're all about creating a dialogue that generates excitement and interest in recycling riht across the province and we want to get the word out. So we’re going to meet with millions of people at events like the Ottawa Blues Festival, Kingston Buskers Rendez-Vous and Honda Indy to build awareness and create a buzz. We hope that you’re one of the people we get to meet this summer. But if you can’t visit us, get involved with our online community through our Facebook page, Youtube channel, or follow us on Twitter.

We’ll be easy to find at events, just look for the Orange Drop trailer and our Hybrid Chevy Silverado – that our steward partner GM is sponsoring! Be part of the change, get involved and learn how to Make the Drop this summer!
