Next Thursday November 24th and Saturday November 26th are the final drop-off days this year at the Household Hazardous Waste Facility at the Kingston Area Recycling Centre. The City asks that prior to heading to the Household Hazardous Waste facility to check your residence for hazardous waste items like pesticides, batteries, pool chemicals, removers or strippers, paint thinners, bleach motor oil antifreeze, propane cylinders and compact fluorescent light bulbs. Proof of residency is also required. After the facility closes for the season, batteries can still be dropped off at City Hall, the INVISTA Centre, or at the main office at The Recycling Centre, and compact fluorescent bulbs can also still be dropped off at The Recycling Centre. The City says to never put hazardous waste in the garbage or down the drain.
