Residents who have unwanted household hazardous waste sitting around their homes or garages will soon be able to get rid of them properly.
The City of Moose Jaw plans to hold a Household Hazardous Waste Day on Saturday, Aug. 29 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Residents can safely dispose of unwanted chemicals and other harmful materials from their households — free of charge — at the city complex at 1010 High Street West, according to a news release.
Some of the materials the municipality is accepting include:
- aerosol cans such as hair spray, deodorant, and household cleaners;
- liquid household cleaners;
- batteries such as lithium ion, alkaline, and rechargeable; and
- lightbulbs such as fluorescent, LED, and metal halide.
There were 502 vehicles that dropped off 5,232 kilograms of hazardous materials at the city complex during the waste day in 2019, the news release said.
Residents with oil, oil filters, oil containers and antifreeze can drop off those items at the landfill during regular hours of operation. Any unwanted paint or electronics can be taken to SARCAN for recycling.
