Where can I drop off my household hazardous waste?
See our year-round household hazardous waste drop-off locations. You can also find locations on our interactive map.
Residents can take their household hazardous waste at no extra charge to any of The City landfill Throw 'n' Go areas or designated fire stations with special storage depots. Once material has been accepted at these depots it cannot be released to the public.
This program is for residential household hazardous waste only. It is not available to business owners or industrial operators.
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.
Household hazardous waste can be taken to one of the following year-round locations.
Fire stations are open for drop-off seven days a week, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
If there is mixed garbage in your load, charges will apply. Learn more about acceptable materials and landfill hours at our landfill information page.
