If you missed an opportunity to dispose of toxic household waste during the spring depots, you can take advantage of upcoming occasions this month.
Did you dispose of all your hazardous household waste last spring? If not, take note of the upcoming depots at which you can safely dispose of chemical, plastic and electronic waste in the next few weeks. Municipalities across the West Island will hold drop-off days this month for hazardous household waste. Included are:
* HHW (hazardous household waste) — paints, oils, antifreeze, aerosols, chemical cleaners, etc.
* Polystyrene items — foam or hard plastic, either coloured or transparent.
* ICT (information and communications technologies) — computers, screens, printers, televisions, radios, cellphones, etc.
The materials will be disposed of safely and responsibly to protect the environment and divert dangerous substances from landfills.
These events are for domestic waste only. Waste from industries, businesses, and institutions will be refused. Proof of residency will be required.
