Town of Bentley announces household hazardous waste round up

Get rid of potentially dangerous chemicals

Every household uses products in the home and garden containing chemicals which are hazardous when disposed of improperly. Now there is an opportunity to clean out all those half-full containers that may be dangerous if dumped down the drain, poured on the ground, or sent to the landfill. Mixed together in landfills, chemicals can be dangerous – to the workers and to the environment.

The Town of Bentley in collaboration with Lacombe County and Alberta Recycling will be hosting the Household Hazardous Waste Round Up on Saturday May 23, 2020 between 1:00pm to 4:00pm at The Bentley Transfer Station located on the West Side of Bentley.

“Check your kitchen, bathroom, laundry, basement, garden shed and garage. Round up the products you no longer need and take them to the Transfer Station”

Keep your materials in their original containers. If the container is broken or cracked, place it inside a leak-proof package and label it. If you discover jars or cans of unidentified chemicals, take them to the Round Up and tell a staff person you are unsure of the contents. Any container that cautions you about careful use of the product or disposal of the container should be included in the Round Up.

Examples of typical household hazardous wastes are:

Adhesives, Disinfectants, Pesticides, Aerosols, Drain Cleaners, Photographic Chemicals, Ammonia, Flea Powder, Rodent Poison, Antifreeze, Herbicides, Solvents, Art Supplies, Insecticides, Swimming Pool Chemicals, Bleach, Metal, Polish, Waxes, Barbecue Starter, Oven Cleaner, Wood Preservatives, Cleaning Fluids and Paint.

All the waste materials collected at the Round Up will be collected, classified manifested, packed and transported by the trained personnel. It will then be taken to a Waste Management Facility for bulking. After the material is bulked it is shipped to the Swan Hills Treatment Centre for proper treatment and disposal. The cost of treatment will be borne by the Alberta Government.

So please do your part and help keep your environment safe for you and others!

The Town of Bentley would also like to thank our sponsors Lacombe County and Alberta Recycling for their partnership in this program.
