Revolve and Evolve

Orange Cycle is a hazardous waste management program run within Ontario Parks in order to help campers safely and properly recycle their propane cylinders.

Do no harm. Leave no trace.


Be a responsible camper! The Ontario Parks with the highest traffic have Orange Cycle bins to make recycling propane cylinders easy, safe, and accessible to campers on site.

Explore more, worry less.
