Household Hazardous Waste depot this Sunday

Get rid of your household hazardous waste at the Maple Grove Depot, 1655 Maple Grove Road, Sunday August 21st from 9am to 4pm.

What is Household Hazardous Waste?
If it’s corrosive, flammable or poisonous it’s hazardous waste. These types of products contaminate water and landfills and should never be poured down the drain or put out with your regular garbage.
To help you dispose of these products safely, the City of Ottawa operates several one-day Household Hazardous Waste Depots for City of Ottawa residents only.
Products to be dropped off at household hazardous waste depots include:
  • Aerosol containers
  • Propane cylinders
  • Disinfectants
  • Florescent bulbs/tubes
  • Fire extinguishers
  • Fertilizers and pesticides
  • Mercury switches/thermometers
  • Needles and syringes
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Paints and coatings
  • Oven and window cleaners
  • Pool chemicals
You can also return certain paint products and batteries to Ottawa hardware retailers. Visit makethedrop.ca to find a location near you.
