Household hazardous waste drop-off program

In Calgary, you can dispose of household hazardous waste such as paint, oil and chemicals at any of our drop-off locations. These include any of our Landfill Throw 'N' Go areas or fire stations that have a special storage depot.

Please note: This program is for residential waste only. For business and industrial hazardous waste, see our household hazardous waste FAQ. Additionally, once we accept materials, we do not release them back to the public.
