Household Hazardous Waste is post-consumer waste that poses a threat to public health and the environment. This category includes paint, paint cans, batteries, aerosol cans, medication, vehicle batteries, fluorescent tubes, compact fluorescent bulbs, spent propane canisters, chemicals, and electronic products (e-waste).
Hazardous waste can be dropped off at Public Works (250 Bedbrook) on designated drop-off days. This year’s annual drop-off day is May 19, 2019 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Public Works cannot accept these items on any other day of the year. To drop-off items any other day, please go to one of Montreal’s Ecocentres.
Household hazardous waste collection is available only to individuals living on the island of Montreal. Contractors and industries must deal with private firms specialized in the recovery of hazardous waste.
The City of Montreal has announced the temporary closure of the Lasalle and Ville St-Laurent facilities as well as schedules changes to the remaining facilities. As the situation appears to be changing regularly, we suggest that you check the Ecocentre website before heading over.
