Halton Region has now held six of seven Special Waste Drop-off Days planned for 2012 to make the recycling and safe disposal of household hazardous waste and electronic waste more convenient for residents. The events, held free of charge have been held at various locations throughout each of the four local municipalities in the Region.
The final Special Waste Drop-off Day for 2012 will take place on:
- Saturday, October 20 (9 a.m. to 3 p.m.) at the Mohawk Racetrack (parking lot), 9430 Guelph Line, Campbellville
Recycling and the proper disposal of household hazardous waste and electronic waste are important to protecting the environment. Special Waste Drop-off Days were designed to provide Halton residents with a convenient opportunity to safely recycle and dispose of these items which should not be placed in the garbage.
Accepted for drop-off, free of charge, include items such as pesticides, paint, motor oil, antifreeze, propane tanks, computers, stereos, TVs, DVD players and VCRs. No commercial waste products are accepted. A complete listing of acceptable and unacceptable items can be found at http://www.halton.ca/waste.
Residents who are unable to attend this remaining event may drop off acceptable household hazardous waste (20 L maximum) and electronic items (5 items maximum) free of charge, year round, at the Halton Waste Management Site, 5400 Regional Road 25, Milton, Monday to Saturday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
