UE19-803

The City of Saskatoon and GFL Environmental Inc. are hosting the final HHW Drop-off Day of 2019 this Sunday, November 3 from 9am - 3:30pm at the Civic Operations Centre at 57 Valley Road.

Residents are invited to drop off their Household Hazardous Waste materials for recycling and safe disposal. Common HHW includes aerosols, automotive fluids, batteries, cleaners, cylinders, light bulbs, medications, yard chemicals, and more. These and many other types of hazardous materials should not be put in the garbage or recycling containers, dumped on the ground or poured down the drain as they pose significant health and environmental risks and can cause injury to workers or damage equipment.

  • Date:  Sunday, November 3
  • Time: 9am - 3:30pm (Gates close at 3:30pm, so please arrive before 3pm to avoid the rush.)

Ask the Wizard! To avoid potentially long line-ups and wait times, residents are also encouraged to use the Waste Wizard tool to search their items and find the most convenient disposal information. The Waste Wizard and SWRC website are also great tools for finding safe and convenient disposal options for your HHW materials during the offseason.

The City would like to thank everyone who participated in HHW Drop-off Days this year, and for diverting their hazardous waste from the Landfill. HHW Drop-off Days are expected to return in April 2020.
