Household Hazardous Waste Day - September 14

 Residents who have household hazardous waste can safely dispose of the material at no charge at three locations Saturday, September 14th.

On that day, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., municipal public works garages in Chatham (25 Creek Rd), Chatham Township (10137 Greenvalley Line) and Tilbury (4 Tower St.) will be open to receive household material only.

Household Hazardous Waste Day is a joint project between Chatham-Kent and Waste Connections of Canada’s Ridge Landfill and is designed to ensure hazardous material is not placed in garbage containers where it could possibly injure collection workers or cause environmental damage.

Materials must be in clearly labelled, sealed containers no larger than 20 litres. Containers will not be returned. Different products cannot be combined and the maximum quantity accepted is 50 litres in total.

Acceptable materials include pool chemicals, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, gasoline, paint, oil, batteries, propane cylinders (max. 30lbs) and biohazardous needles. For a full list of acceptable material, visit www.chatham-kent.ca or call (519) 360-1998.
