|What is household hazardous waste (HHW)?|
Household hazardous waste consists of products that are, well, hazardous – either to the environment or to you, your family and pets and to sanitation workers. The most recognizable of these products have a label identifying the contents as flammable, poisonous, reactive or dry garbage.
How do I get rid of my Household Hazardous waste?
Aerosol cans, bleach bottles and household cleaning products are considered HHW only if there is product remaining in the container. If the container is empty and dry, it can beep placed in the dry bag. In May and September, the Southeast Regional Services Commission HHW mobile recovery unit visits Kent County’s areas. This allows residents to properly dispose of their hazardous waste.
You can also drop them off at the permanent HHW depot at the Berry Mills Landfill Centre located at 2024 Route 128 (Berry Mills Road). This depot is currently open Fridays from 10 am to 3 pm and Saturdays from 9 am to 1 pm. Both these services are free of charge and reduce a number of hazardous substances in the environment.
