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. Drop-offs occur once per year, typically in late May. 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.
