We Are A Registered Charity & Reuse Centre

Wastewise is a recycling centre and registered charity located in Georgetown, Ontario and proudly serves Halton Hills and surrounding area.

We are a first stop for many thrifters, environmentalists, production companies, and bulk buyers who ship to Cuba, Africa, and more!

Operating since 1991, this community-based initiative offers education programs and recycling opportunities and generates revenue through the sale of used goods.

On the surface, Wastewise is a place where people socialize, browse, tinker, and go the extra distance to 'do their part'. However, as a common link to all sectors, Wastewise is much more. The center is exemplary of sustainable community economic development and front end approaches to managing waste.

Stay safe and recycle!

Since Opening in 1991, Wastewise has been giving back to the community through environmental scholarships, community education, reducing landfill waste and assisting those in need!

Wastewise provides more scholarships than any other organization in Halton Region!

In 2019, Donations to Wastewise kept over 400 Metric Tonnes of Reusable Materials from being put into landfills!

All proceeds generated from sales of recycled goods in our Charity Store go back into the community!
