The Regional District of Central Kootenay is pleased to announce six upcoming Household Hazardous Waste Round-up events. This is the time to clean out your garden shed, garage and under the kitchen sink to get rid of toxic chemicals such as pesticides, oils and cleaners safely. Find the event nearest you and join in the round-up! This community event facilitates disposal without drop off fees of household hazardous waste only, no industrial or commercial hazardous waste will be accepted.

“The round up is a cost effective way to help residents dispose of items in an environmentally responsible way for no additional drop off fee,” says RDCK Joint Resource Recovery Committee Chair Jackman. “The public has made it clear they value these events, so it is great news that we have been able to budget for an increase in the number of round-ups held this year to six events across the region.”
