A web page designed to provide a 'one stop' site for re-use and recycling links. Simply click on the icons below to link to different sites that can help you get rid of stuff through recycling or re-using these items rather than disposing of them. Alternatively, use the Waste Wizard if you don't know where things go.
Assistive Device Exchange
The Assistive Device Exchange is a locally based website which allows used adaptive equipment to be re-used. People with equipment, they no longer need may list the equipment either for sale, or offer it for free. People who need equipment can search the website to obtain equipment at reduced or no cost.
Special Waste Recycling Program
Household Hazardous Waste
Please recycle your tires. Scrap tires are a valuable resource when reused or recycled into new products. Examples of recycled uses in Ontario are: Floor mats used in hockey arenas, soaker hoses for watering your garden more efficiently, mouse pads to keep you productive on your computer and rubber components for use in your car’s engine.
Save up to $125 a year on your electricity costs!
Giving and getting free items
The Freecycle Network™ is made up of 4,966 groups with 8,530,721 members across the globe. It's a non-profit movement to give and get stuff for free and keep good stuff out of landfills.
Recycling building materials
ReStores are building supply stores run by Habitat for Humanity affiliates that accept and resell quality new and used building materials. Shopping at a ReStore is an environmentally conscious decision, as much of what is sold at ReStores is product that is new, gently used or customer returns that would otherwise end up in a landfill.
Experience Simcoe County Trails while driving our country roads or through our communities, it is a regrettable to see so many old and unsightly vehicles rusting away and contaminating our environment. It does not have to be that way though! A local trails association, Huronia Trails and Greenways has an innovative trail program, called “Help Trails Grow”.
