The City of Ottawa is committed to providing residents options for the safe disposal of household hazardous waste which cannot be disposed of through regular waste collection services. In providing events to collect hazardous waste, the City of Ottawa is protecting both the environment and the health and safety of waste collection workers. These events complement existing programs administered by retailers to collect specific types of household hazardous waste material on an ongoing basis.

The City hosts HHW events to ensure hazardous waste is safely collected, transported, and appropriately recycled or disposed of, in compliance with federal and provincial legislation on the handling, transport, and disposal of hazardous waste. Trained and certified waste management professionals plan, manage and execute these events to ensure compliance with all existing legislation. The collection of hazardous waste by untrained, uncertified collectors would be considered a contravention to the Ontario Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks (MECP) R.R.O. 1990, Reg. 347.

In 2021, the City hosted four 1-day HHW events and an extended 5-day event, for a total of 9 household hazardous waste collection days open to Ottawa residents. This year, the Public Works Department will continue to provide collection services for HHW such as corrosive, flammable or poisonous materials, by offering 9 free one-day events from April 24, 2022 through to October 23, 2022. The City has added locations at the Rideau Carleton Casino, the Michael Street Snow Dump, and the Canadian Tire Centre for 2022.
