Household Hazardous Waste Events

These collection events happen every year and provide an oppurtunity to RDCK residents to responsibly dispose of RESIDENTIAL HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE MATERIALS for free.

2021 Events will be scheduled between September 11th and October 3rd.  Dates and locations will be posted here once confirmed with the Contractor and Product Stewards.

The RDCK makes every attempt to involve product stewards at the events as well to allow residents to drop off product stewardship items at the same time. Due to cost restraints, not all product stewards were available at all events. For information on BC’s product stewardship programs, including depot locations, visit: www.rcbc.ca or 1-800-667-4321.
