Community

Fostering community is important to us at Front Porch Refillery. We hope to provide our customers and community members with resources to make sustainable living easier. 

Community Recycling Initiative

Disposing of hard-to-recycle items can be a bit confusing and inconvenient. So, we are here to make it easier. With each order you place, you may leave the below items out and we will ensure they're recycled properly. Household batteries, writing instruments, Love Child Organics packaging and light bulbs.

In addition, as of April, we will be collecting Bread Tags, Milk Bags (the colourful outer bag) and Pop Can Tabs. These items will then be taken to the Hummingbird Hub in Stouffville.

Community Fundraising Initiative

We believe that sustainability doesn't end with recycling and low-waste living. It extends to fostering strong community so that every person in our community feels supported and seen. As such, we are pleased to set aside 1% of sales in support of various invaluable organizations that serve our community.

Recycling - What goes where?

York Region has two ways to help you decide what goes where: Bindicator and Recycle Coach App.

We like the Recycle Coach for how easy it is to use on your phone. If you're going to throw something in the blue bin but aren't too sure, just open the app and double check. To download click here.

York Region: Bindicator is also a great tool. We find it more user-friendly on our desktop computer than our phone. In our experience, Bindicator is the most up-to-date tool. To use the tool click here

Durham Region: Know Before You Throw is a great tool! Check it out here.
