Round up that Household Hazardous Waste

The RDCK’s Household Hazardous Waste Roundup events of 2015 have been a great success, with events in Castlegar, Creston, Kaslo and Nelson completed this month. Over 530 residents have dropped off hazardous items like mercury, flammables, acids, and solvents. Product Care has also participated, allowing residents to drop off items like paint, oil, and light bulbs.

At the last four events the RDCK collected:
 - paint, pesticides, solvents, aerosols
 - lighting products, mercury, waste tar, adhesives
 - waste solids, waste liquids
 - and much, much more!!

If you missed these roundups, don't fear: the RDCK is holding two more this month:

Saturday, September 26, 2015
11:00am - 2:00pm

(by the recycling bins)
Sunday, September 27, 2015
11:00am - 2:00pm

Don’t miss your chance to get rid of those tricky items you can’t take to the landfill.
