Hazardous household waste

 

Collection Delay 


June 8 - Despite the constant efforts of our contractor, the collection of household hazardous waste is still ongoing. We anticipate that the streets that have not yet been serviced will be in the next few weeks. Unfortunately, it is difficult to give a precise estimate.

If your materials have not been collected by the end of the day on Friday, please pick them up and put them back on the road on Monday morning. Details. 

 

What is household hazardous waste? (HHW)

 

Household hazardous waste (HHW) refers to waste from hazardous products commonly used in homes, such as used oils, paints, solvents, compact fluorescent light bulbs, pesticides, drugs, cleaning products, etc.
 


How to dispose of HHW?
 

DOOR-TO-DOOR COLLECTION | WEEK OF MAY 30 AND SEPTEMBER 12, 2021

 

Residents can take advantage of this special collection to dispose of their HHW.
We invite those interested in this collection to read the details and instructions carefully.

As a safety precaution, HHW deposited for collection that does not meet the standards below will not be collected. 
 

HHW will be picked up at the same time as the regular collection according to the usual schedule. They must be placed on the street next to your bins, starting at 7:00 a.m. in the morning.
