Drop Off Your Waste

Waste depots are operated by York Region. You can drop off your waste at a depot when:

  • You want to dispose of items not collected at your residence/curb/etc.
  • You have too much material to set out on your collection day
  • You don't want to hold on to material until your next collection day
  • You missed your collection day

Please note there is also a fee for dropping off regular garbage.

Some items are only accepted at specific waste drop-off depots. These items require special handling and include:

  • Hazardous waste
  • Electronics
  • Cooking oil
  • Tires
  • Reusable items

Community Environmental Centre

Residents can conveniently drop off certain materials, including reusable goods, recyclables, building materials, appliances and metal goods at the Elgin Mills Community Environmental Centre (CEC).

  • Goodwill Donation Centres are closed at York Region Community Environmental Centres until further notice. Please visit york.ca/bindicator for alternate reuse options.
