Household Hazardous Waste

Don't throw hazardous waste in the garbage, down the sink or in the sewer!

Bring it to the Household Hazardous Waste Depot for free disposal. If you can’t bring it yourself, call the Toxic Taxi for free home collection service. 

If you are unsure about whether an item is considered hazardous waste, use our Waste Wise tool to find out.
