Follow these 6 simple steps to dispose of your waste at the drop-off depot:

Step 1
  • All vehicles containing waste must report to the weigh scales.
  • On entering the Drop-off Depot your vehicle will be weighed.
  • Note: Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) and electronics disposal is free, so your vehicle does not need to be weighed.
  • Follow the on-site signs to drive directly to the HHW drop-off area.
Step 2
  • Declare the items being disposed:
    • Garbage, Recycling, Drywall, Scrap Metal, Tires, Electronic Waste, Yard Waste
Step 3
  • A deposit will be required before you will be allowed to dispose of your material. The deposit amount will depend on the estimated size of your load and the type of material.
  • A minimum $20 deposit will be required for all loads, and the payment methods are: Cash, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Debit cards.
Step 4
  • Staff will direct you to the appropriate disposal area.
  • You are responsible for unloading items.
    • Note: Personal Protection Equipment is recommended when disposing material at these locations. The City of Toronto uses its best efforts to ensure that sites are clear of obstructions and hazards. The City takes no responsibilities for damages to vehicles while on site. Users should consider these locations as industrial.
Step 5
  • After materials are unloaded, the vehicle will return to the weigh scales where the net weight will be calculated and the final fee will be applied.
Step 6
  • Weigh scale receipt is printed, refund or additional funds are received to finalize the transaction.

Note: Vehicles containing separate loads of garbage and recycling must return to the weigh scales after each material type is disposed; if not, then disposal fee will be calculated based on the highest material rate.
