City hosts household hazardous waste disposal event

In 2021, citizens helped divert more than 548 tonnes of hazardous waste from the landfill.

This Sunday is a chance for Ottawa residents to dispose of their household hazardous waste.

The August 7 event will be at the Innes Snow Dump and will accept any products that are corrosive, flammable or poisonous.

“These types of products contaminate water and landfills and should never be poured down the drain or put out with your regular garbage,” the City of Ottawa states.
