Household Hazardous Waste

The Household Hazardous Waste collection program is coordinated through Alberta Environment and administered by Alberta Recycling. With several permanent collection sites and household hazardous waste roundups provided every year across Alberta, it’s easy and convenient for you to safely dispose of those unwanted hazardous household products.

The yearly roundup is sponsored by Beaver County and Beaver Municipal Solutions.
