Fun Fact: Did you know that approximately 70% of the hazardous waste brought to
the Depot or a Special waste Drop-off Day is recycled or reused?

Halton residents can pick up and drop off usable paint and stain at the
Paint & Stain Reuse Depot, free of charge.
The Paint & Stain Reuse Depot is conveniently located beside the Household
Hazardous Waste Depot at the Halton Waste Management Site (HWMS)
The HWMS cannot guarantee which colours will be available.
The Paint and Stain Reuse Depot is open from mid-spring to mid-fall to
prevent materials from freezing.
Halton residents can drop off items that are in good condition and fit for resale at the Reuse Depot, located within the Halton Waste Management site, free of charge.
There are 2 privately owned waste transfer stations operating within Halton Region for garbage only. Before dropping off waste materials, please contact the location for details about acceptable materials and fees.
To make the recycling and safe disposal of household hazardous waste more convenient for residents, Halton Region holds
Special Waste Drop-off Days throughout the year.
Many retailers take back select household hazardous waste for recycling or safe disposal:
Visit a Battery Recycling Depot to drop off household batteries and cell phones for recycling.
For tires (car, truck, farm), visit rethinktires.ca (external link)
for acceptable materials and drop off locations.
Electronics are not collected with garbage or bulk waste. These items can be
recycled at one of
Halton Regions Special Waste Drop-off days.
For electronic waste (computers, monitors, TVs, stereos, DVD players, etc) visit www.recycleyourelectronics.ca (external link) for acceptable materials and drop off locations.
Please do not dump your garbage at reuse centres. When charitable
organizations receive material that is not in resalable condition they must
dispose of unusable material on their own which takes away from the money that
was intended for charitable community initiatives.
Please call ahead and ask for a list of acceptable drop off items
before bringing items to the reuse centres
To find out how to properly dispose of you waste, please visit the Put Waste In Its Place tool.
