The Take it Back! Program ensures that many household items are reused, recycled or disposed of properly. In this voluntary program, businesses and charitable organizations take back specific used items from Ottawa residents such as used motor oil, computer equipment, used clothing, batteries and more.
A winner of the 1999 Recycling Council of Ontario Outstanding Product Stewardship Award, the Take it Back! program was also submitted for the Federation of Canadian Municipalities 2000 Sustainable Community Awards.
