Most households generate a ton of garbage which mostly consists of plastics bottles, cardboard, tin cans various glass material. However, did you ever think of the other garbage you dispose off? Hazardous waste can harm people, animals and plants and  must be disposed off in a proper manner.

  1. Batteries
  2. Electronics
  3. Household Cleaning Solutions
  4. Tires
  5. Motor Oil
  6. Paint
  7. Paint thinners
  8. Air Freshners..(Yes…Hazardous)

Even though the disposal of all hazardous waste might seem stressful and time-consuming, it is well worth it. In order to help out the local environment, Toronto is surrounded by Hazardous Waste Depots that accept this material all throughout the year. You are saving the lives of several humans and animals in the process. Your simple actions of discarding hazardous waste in their respective stations results in the following positive consequences:

  1. Creating Safer Work Environment for Sanitation Workers
