Varsity household hazardous waste drop-off
The Varsity Multi Service Redevelopment project will affect access to the household hazardous waste drop-off at Varsity Fire Station #17.
Effective April 13, 2022, the household hazardous waste drop-off at Varsity Fire Station will temporarily move to Bowness Fire Station #15, located at 6328 35 Avenue NW. Please take your household hazardous waste to this location instead.
Bowness Fire Station was chosen because of the space available at the site for a household hazardous waste shed and is located close enough to Varsity that it is still convenient for residents in surrounding communities to access the drop-off.
An alternative household hazardous waste drop-off in the northwest is Spyhill Landfill at 11808 69 Street NW.
Household hazardous waste such as paint, propane tanks, automotive and cleaning chemicals don’t belong in your blue, green or black carts. Take these items to household hazardous waste drop-off at City landfills or designated fire stations for safe disposal.
Make sure to properly package and label your household hazardous waste before taking to a drop-off location. This is for your safety and the safety of employees who collect and handle your leftover chemicals. It also protects against spills and prevents the mixing of chemicals.
