Cash is not accepted at any Drop-off Depots; please pay via debit or credit card.
The City of Toronto operates seven Transfer Stations which have drop-off depots used to collect, sort and transfer all the City’s waste. Residents can also use these depots to dispose of their unwanted items.
- A face mask or covering is recommended when you are unable to maintain a two metre (six feet) distance from others. At drop-off depots, this includes interacting with staff at weigh scales or dropping off household hazardous waste.
- A deposit will be required before you are allowed to dispose of your material. Please pay by credit card or debit; cash will not be accepted. The deposit amount will depend on the estimated size of your load and the type of material. A minimum $40 deposit will be required for all loads.
- During peak periods (11 a.m. – 1 p.m. & 3 p.m. – 5 p.m.) priority is given to City-operated and contracted vehicles operating on behalf of the City.
- Sites operating overnight are required to complete end-of-day procedures between 11:40 p.m. and midnight, therefore there may be minor delays during this period.
