Post #1 by Head Honcho » Mon May 21, 2018 9:51 am

The Municipal Hazardous and Special Waste Day is back, taking place on Saturday, June 16 from 8 a.m. - 2 p.m. in the parking lot of the Archie Dillon Sportsplex.

Items being collected include paint, aerosols, single-use batteries, single-use propane cylinders and refillable propane tanks

Many everyday products contain hazardous ingredients. If you decide to discard these products, they become household hazardous wastes requiring proper disposal.

Some examples of Household Hazardous Waste can be: batteries, motor oil, paint, old propane tanks, etc.

Paint

Allow paint to harden, once harden it may be disposed at the Deloro Landfill.

The Deloro Landfill cannot accept liquid waste only solid waste.

Old Propane Tanks

Old propane tanks along with other white goods (i.e. fridges and stoves) can be disposed of at any local scrap metal dealer.

Automotive batteries may be disposed of at any local scrap metal dealer.

Reusable and recyclable rechargeable batteries are used in cell phones, cordless power tools, laptops, camcorders, remote control toys, and more.
