Household hazardous waste drop-off guidelines
Please note: This program is for residential household hazardous waste only. It is not available to business owners or industrial operators. Additionally, once material has been accepted at these depots, it cannot be released to the public.
Please make sure your household hazardous waste is clearly labeled and sealed properly, if possible in the original containers. It's important because household hazardous waste can pose a danger to our workers, your family, your pets, your neighbourhood and the environment. For more information on how to properly package and label your household hazardous waste or safely store it until you bring it to a drop-off location, please visit our safe handling of household hazardous waste page.

Note: Business owners and industrial operators. If you have waste chemicals at your business, call The City at 311 or look in the local Yellow pages under "waste disposal - hazardous" for alternate disposal options.
Call The City at 311 or 403-268-2489 if calling from outside of Calgary.
