One of my favourite parts of camping is reaching into my backpack and pulling out the components to assemble a mini-kitchen. Lightweight cutlery and plates along with a stove and fuel. The problem however after numerous delicious meals, is what to do with the empty propane cylinder. To try and solve this issue, Ontario Parks partnered with Stewardship Ontario in 2009 and started setting up Orange Drop bins in parks. How successful was this? In 2011, Ontario Parks and Stewardship Ontario were able to divert 102,000 kg of cylinders from our landfills!
