Residents in Mississauga can easily dispose of household hazardous waste this Saturday, April 27.
The Region of Peel Conservation Day at the Clarkson GO Station will accept many items that normally have to go to specialized recycling facilities in the region.
The one-day event from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the parking lot of the GO station will be set up so that residents can simply drive in and drop off.
Items that will be accepted at no cost include:
- confidential paper for shredding,
- household hazardous waste: batteries, household cleaners, paints and solvents, items with mercury,
- reusable goods: clothing, textiles, books and small appliances – but not furniture, and
- used electronic equipment: phones, personal computers, circuit boards and TVs.
“Conservation Day gives residents the opportunity to dispose of unwanted items for free,” says Supervisor Dwayne Cromwell, of Peel’s Community Recycling Centre. “Disposing of these items properly and safely is a great way to help to keep out community clean and items out of landfill.”
During the day rain barrels can also be purchased for $50.
The location is at 1110 Southdown Rd with the entrance on Royal Windsor Dr.
