October 26th – Hazardous Waste depot day at Barrhaven Fallowfield Park and Ride

Old man winter is just around the corner, which means this is a great time to clean out the basement and garage and get rid of any hazardous waste you might have lying around.¬†Household hazardous waste poses a danger both to our solid waste collectors and our environment. Let’s all pitch in and help keep it out of the landfill. The City of Ottawa will run a one-day depot on Sunday, October 26th from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the OC Transpo Park and Ride at 3355 Fallowfield Road.
