Household Hazardous Waste RoundUp Success!

The RDCK’s first two Household Hazardous Waste Roundup events of 2015, held in Castlegar and Creston last weekend, were a great success! Over 250 residents dropped off hazardous items like mercury, flammables, acids, and solvents. Product Care also participated, allowing residents the chance to drop off items like paint, oil, and light bulbs.

At the Castlegar/Creston events the RDCK collected:

•    3440L Paint, 31L pesticides, 27.5L solvents, 102L aerosols

•    91 fluorescent tubes, 174 light bulbs

•    61Kg mercury, 300L waste tar, 1145L waste adhesives

•    2555L waste solids, 3065L waste liquids

•    And much, much more!!

If you missed the roundup, don’t fear: the RDCK is holding four more this month. We will be at the following events, so don’t miss your chance to get rid of those tricky items you can’t bring to the landfill.
