Our homes are filled with municipal hazardous waste or special waste (MHSW) materials that need extra care when they've reached the end of their useful lives – things like paints, solvents and batteries.
Throwing these chemicals in the garbage or pouring them down the drain can be dangerous to our families and our environment. That's why we encourage everyone to follow the "BUD" rule:
Buy only what you need
Use it all up
Drop off the rest at a local drop off-site to be recycled, reprocessed or safely disposed of
Household Hazardous Waste Days
Household Hazardous Waste Days will be held at Veolia Environmental Services located at 141 Prosperity Way near Chatham in the Bloomfield Business Park on:
- Saturday, September 25, 2021, from 8am to 3pm
- Monday, September 27, 2021, from 8am to 3pm
- Saturday, October 2, 2021, from 8am to 3pm
- Monday, October 4, 2021, from 8am to 3pm
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, there will be no drop-off locations in Blenheim and Wallaceburg as advertised in the 2021 Residential Recycling and Waste Collection Guide. We apologize for any inconvenience.
