City of Ottawa holding an extended household hazardous waste depot

With all of the home renovations both inside and out over the past year, residents may have an abundance of hazardous waste waiting for disposal. While the City expects to run regular household hazardous waste depots in 2021, the year’s first event will be an extended event, similar to last year.

Starting Tuesday, June 22, residents will be able to dispose of household hazardous waste at 3100 Conroy Road daily between 8 am and 4 pm until Saturday, June 26.

The City, in consultation with Ottawa Public Health, has reviewed safety precautions to protect the health and safety of residents and staff and has posted procedures online.

The depot will accept household hazardous waste only and will not be accepting electronic waste. Residents must always remain in their vehicles and, due to operating restrictions, staff will not empty and return bins, totes, gas cans and the like to residents.

Work will cease promptly at 4:00 pm and if the site is experiencing long end-of-day line-ups, residents might not be able to drop off materials that day.

The City will provide details on the remaining household hazardous waste depots as soon as they are available. Planning is underway to ensure city-wide coverage for future depots.
