Disposal of Household Hazardous Waste

Some examples of common household hazardous wastes include (but is no limited to); pesticides, solvents (such a turpentine), antifreeze, pool and spa chemicals, bleach, unused gasoline, and rat poison.

Another hazardous waste that is often not recognized as such is unused medication and health supplements. When disposed of improperly these compounds can have severe consequences on the surrounding environment.

If you have any unused medication or health supplements, please bring them to your nearest pharmacy, hospital, or health center for proper disposal, free of charge.

If you live in the Greater Terrace Area, you can bring many household hazardous materials for proper disposal to Do Your Part Recycling free of charge.

This includes*: 

  • Pesticides
  • Flammable liquids
