Hazardous Waste

Hazardous waste includes products that are poisonous, corrosive, flammable, or explosive. It is important to properly dispose of Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) to avoid contaminating the water, land and air, and to prevent harm to people and animals.


A combination of permanent depots and mobile collection events, offered through Regional Waste Management Authorities, extend the reach of convenient and proper disposal solutions in the province.
