    Hazardous Household Waste Collection Day

    Hazardous Household Waste Collection Day August 11, 2018

    The City of Martensville will be holding a Hazardous Household Waste (HHW) Collection day on
    Saturday, August 11, 2018 from 9:30am to 3:30pm in the parking lot of the Martensville Sports
    Centre.

    This event will give residents of Martensville the opportunity to dispose of a variety of
    hazardous household waste and chemicals that cannot be disposed of in the regular garbage or
    recycling collection. Improper disposal of hazardous household waste can result in
    contamination of the environment, including waterways and greenspaces within the City.

    The event will take place in the parking lot of the Sports Centre where collection points will be
    set up. Workers will ask residents what type of waste they have and will direct them to the
    appropriate collection points. We ask that all materials are brought in containers that won’t
    spill or leak.

    All materials should be clearly labelled, and if possible should be brought in the
    original packaging. Unidentified materials will not be accepted. Please note that this is only for
    household hazardous waste, no commercial, industrial, or farm chemicals or waste will be
    accepted. Please see below for a detailed list of accepted materials.
