On Saturday, May 14th, 2022, BurlingtonGreen is teaming up with the Burlington Centre and the Burlington Repair Cafe to host a Zero Waste Event to help the community repurpose household items and eliminate clutter from their homes and offices while helping the environment. BONUS: you can also conveniently pre-order a rain barrel to pick up at this event too!

The convenient contact-free Drive-Thru component will take place at the Fairview St. facing parking lot at the Burlington Centre from 10am to 4pm where volunteers will gladly accept a variety of items to be properly recycled.

Crew members from the ERA (Electronic Recycling Association) will be on-site to accept computer and cell phone electronics, and a series of Terracycle Zero Waste bins will be located at the drive-thru station to accept more unique waste items not currently accepted in Halton Region’s recycling program. 

Pesky candy wrappers, Brita water filters, reusable plastic containers and lids and used PPE can be dropped off, along with batteries and ink cartridges.

Details on the full list of what can be dropped off is available further below.


Our friends at the Burlington Repair Cafe will be located inside the Burlington Centre at the HUB space to repair broken or damaged household items from 10am to 2pm.

As a community, we have the responsibility to honour, care for and respect all the Creation gives to provide us with life. This includes the land, water, air, fire, animals, plants and our ancestors.

The Anishinabek Peoples have utilized this land for millennia and we would like to acknowledge their direct descendants, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, as the rightful caretakers and titleholders of this land upon which we live, work and conduct ourselves. We acknowledge our treaty relationship and responsibilities to both the land and these original peoples.

We also recognize that this land is rich in pre-contact history and customs, which includes the Anishinabek and Haudenosaunee and since European contact, has and continues to become home for Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. And it is in the spirit and intent of the Dish With One Spoon, wampum agreement whereby we will collectively care for and respect the land, water, animals and each other in the interests of peace and friendship and for the benefit of not only ourselves but of our future descendants.
