Household Hazardous Waste Depots

To help you dispose of household hazardous waste safely, the City of Ottawa is running several one-day Household Hazardous Waste depots.

Household Hazardous Waste is any corrosive, flammable or poisonous waste. These types of products contaminate water and landfills and should never be poured down the drain or put out with your regular garbage.

Products to be dropped off include: (maximum 100 litres by volume)

  • Aerosol containers
  • Propane cylinders
  • Disinfectants
  • Fluorescent bulbs/tubes
  • Fire extinguishers
  • Fertilizers and pesticides
  • Mercury switches/thermometers
  • Needles and syringes
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Paints and coatings
  • Oven and window cleaners
  • Pool chemicals

Liquid or hazardous waste from industrial, commercial and institutional sources will not be accepted.  The one-day Household Hazardous Waste Depots are for residential household waste only and is exclusive for City of Ottawa residents. You can also return certain paint products and batteries to Ottawa hardware retailers. For more information on this, please click here.
