Important reminders about fireworks

Only adults 18 years of age or older should supervise or set off fireworks. Those setting off fireworks must be mindful of their surroundings and not discharge fireworks where they may be a nuisance or pose a risk of fire, injury or damage to any person or property.


Bylaw Enforcement Officers and Toronto Police Service will be patrolling various parks and waterfront areas to ensure compliance with the Fireworks Bylaw.


In the event of a fire, call 911.


The misuse or illegal sale of fireworks can be reported to 311 by phone or by submitting a service request on the City’s 311 webpage:


Safe fireworks disposal

Improper fireworks disposal can cause fires in waste collection vehicles and at facilities. To dispose of used or unused fireworks, residents are encouraged to completely submerge them in water and soak them overnight. Place the soaked fireworks in a plastic bag to keep them from drying out and dispose of them in your garbage bin. Never put used or unused fireworks in your blue bin.


More information about fireworks rules, safety tips and proper disposal is available on the City’s Fireworks webpage:
