Where to dispose of toxic cleaners?

I live in the Toronto area in Ontario, Canada. We recently switched all our household products to Melaleuca's brand of non-toxic versions of the old standards. I've wondering where we can safely dispose of the leftover cleaners (i.e. bleach, dishwasher detergent, bathroom cleaners, etc.) Remember, these all have toxic chemicals (hence the reason for the switch) so I'm not about to flush them or dump them down the drain...any ideas??
