Collection of household hazardous materials

The first household hazardous waste collection day of the year will take place on Saturday.

Sarnia-Lambton residents can drop off household hazardous materials at Clean Harbors Canada, located at 4090 Telfer Road. in the Township of St. Clair, between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Disposal of potentially hazardous waste in regular trash cans can cause environmental problems or result in the injury of a sanitation worker. Whereas, depot disposal of household hazardous waste is free of charge to residents.

Household hazardous materials include batteries, pesticides, pool chemicals, bleach, paints and propane cylinders. A full list of what is accepted and what is not can be found by clicking here.

Residents are encouraged to place drop off materials in a disposable container (such as a cardboard box) and place it in the back of a vehicle to allow for social distancing. Due to COVID-19 concerns, residents are also asked to remain in their vehicles while staff remove gear, as noted on the county’s website.

The next Household Hazardous Waste Day will be April 30. Additional collection days will take place on the last Saturdays of May, June, September and October.
