(Theme 7 – Waste)

Organization: City of Ottawa

Timeline for Completion: Ongoing


Please dispose of them properly. Find out where they go at: ottawa.ca/wasteexplorer

Not sure where an item goes? Visit the Waste Explorer to find out.

Not all materials can be thrown in the garbage. There are many items the City does not collect at the curb.

These include:
•TVs, computers and other electronics
•Chemicals, paints and other household hazardous materials
•Needles, syringes and crack pipes

A lot of materials don’t have to end up in the garbage. They can be reused, recycled or donated to charitable organizations.

These include:
•Used clothing, bedding or other textiles

Give Away Weekend is another great opportunity to help others while keeping household goods out of the landfill. There is also a number of websites dedicated to selling, buying and giving away used and/or unwanted items.
