Hazardous Waste

Depot is open Last Saturday of the month as follows:

The County of Lambton, in conjunction with Clean Harbors Canada Inc., host several Household Hazardous Waste collections events each year. The events give Lambton County residents an opportunity to properly dispose of potentially dangerous waste from their homes and protect our environment at the same time. If hazardous products are thrown in with the regular garbage, it can injure sanitation workers and cause long-term environmental problems.

Household Hazardous Waste Days take place at the Clean Harbors Canada Inc. site:

4090 Telfer Road in St. Clair Township the last Saturdays of March, April, May, June, September, and October.

9am – 2pm
