Household Hazardous Waste
Do you have a stockpile of old paint, a drawer full of dead batteries or maybe a half dozen burnt out Compact Fluorescent Light (CFL) bulbs? If the answer is yes, you are not alone. Most people find that over the course of a year or two they accumulate a quantity of leftover, unwanted hazardous waste. No one wants to put these things in the garbage, but many don’t know what else to do. Click here for a list of what is accepted.
Proper disposal of hazardous waste helps to protect our environment and drinking water sources. Learn more about protecting the region’s drinking water by visiting quintesourcewater.ca or trentsourceprotection.on.ca
The products collected at these events are categorized and then either Reused, Recycled, or packaged for safe disposal.

CHANGE for 2017 – Electronic Waste will no longer be collected at mobile events. Municipal landfills have been equipped with e-waste recycling bins that residents can use instead. At this time, all PEC residents can visit the Trenton or Belleville location to dispose of electronic waste.
Quinte Waste Solutions offers a program throughout the year where homeowners can drop off Hazardous Waste at various locations throughout the Quinte region.
Mobile events happen on Saturdays during the summer months, and run from 9am-2pm. Download a copy of our Hazardous & Electronic Waste Brochure to find an event near you and to see what’s accepted. Any residents serviced by Quinte Waste Solutions is welcome at any event.
