Fredericton Region Solid Waste’s first remote household hazardous waste remote is scheduled for Saturday, May 28, at Cambridge Narrows.
The HHW remote will be held at the Cambridge Narrows School at 2158 Lakeview Rd., from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The remote HHW collection allows residents in the area the opportunity to drop off potentially hazardous materials. Only containers with 20 litres or less of materials will be accepted. No commercial, institutional or industrial waste will be accepted. The event is designed for residential use only and that includes cottages and vacation homes.
There is a no charge service for the event.
Simply load up items in your basement or garage such as gasoline, paint, thinners, swimming pool chemicals, stain removers, batteries or windshield wiper fluid and bring it to the school. The items will be handled by the FRSWC’s hazardous waste personnel for proper handling.
For further information on what will be accepted, call the Recycling Hotline at 453-9938.
