One-day depot for household hazardous waste May 1

The City is proud to join forces with Natural Resources Canada and Public Works and Government Services Canada to host a one-day mobile household hazardous waste collection depot on Saturday, May 1. The depot will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the federal government parking lot between 405 Rochester Street and 550 Booth Street, just south of the Queensway.

This depot provides a convenient way for you to help keep the environment free of hazardous household waste.

Residents are reminded that only household waste will be accepted (maximum 100 litres) at the depot. No commercial waste accepted. For a complete listing of acceptable household hazardous waste, visit the City’s website at

Avoid line-ups for the following product:

  • Waste oil can be brought back to a “Take it Back!” Partner retailer; check the City’s Web site at under Recycling and Garbage for a list of 100 retailers that take back oil.

Did you know you could return paint products and batteries to various Ottawa hardware retailers? Visit for a location near you.
