At over 14 million people, Ontario is by far the most populated province in Canada. Toronto, with a population of almost three million, is the province’s and country’s largest city.
Ontario is divided into the metropolitan south and the rugged, vast land of the north. The province is covered in lakes and trees and has long, cold winters and humid, hot summers. Product Care Recycling is committed to protecting these lakes and trees, by providing waste diversion solutions across the province.
The Ontario Hazardous and Special Products (O. Reg. 449/21) and Electrical and Electronic Equipment (O. Reg. 522/20) regulations are transforming recycling in Ontario. Under these regulatory frameworks, Product Care Recycling operates recycling programs for paint, certain household hazardous products and lighting at their end of life.
Ontario residents and businesses, where applicable, can recycle their leftover or end-of-life products at Product Care collection sites across Ontario. Recycling locations are comprised of retail stores, municipal collection depots, municipal events and other collection partners across Ontario.
