Hazardous Waste Depots

Notice:

All County waste facilities have re-opened with their regular operating hours. Reuse Centres and textile bins will remain closed at all sites until further notice.

The County Mobile HHW Depot is now open. View the 2020 Mobile HHW Depot Schedule.


As part of the re-opening process, please note the following:
- Sites may be extremely busy. Expect significant delays and wait times. Please be patient.
- If possible, visit waste facilities during the week. Saturdays are typically the busiest day.
- The use of masks or face (mouth/nose) coverings is strongly encouraged.
- Please use credit or debit for payment, preferably the tap function.
- Maintain physical distancing, and be expedient on site.
- Follow staff directions.

The health and safety of the public and staff is the top priority as the waste facility services are being restored. Learn more about waste facility hours and locations. We appreciate your patience and understanding at this time.
