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 July 12, 2020 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Due to COVID-19, there are special instructions to follow during the collection:
Please note that because of these measures, waiting times may be longer than usual. It is very important to wait your turn and be patient.
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.
We suggest that you check the opening hours on the Ecocentre website before heading over.
