October 6 is the day that residential property owners in Champlain Township, Hawkesbury and the Township of East Hawkesbury can dispose of household hazardous waste items, as part of an initiation by the Hawkesbury regional recycling committee.
The hours for the drop-off are from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Hawkesbury Sewage Treatment Plant at 815 Main Street East in Hawkesbury.
Items which will be accepted include pesticides and garden products, miscellaneous products like air fresheners, dry cell batteries, gas cylinders and fluorescent light tubes and energy efficient light bulbs. Personal care products like nail polish remover and unused over-the-counter or prescription drugs will also be accepted. Automotive and garage products, paints, solvents and glue products and household cleaning products will also be accepted.
See the ad in the print and e-edition of The Review for a detailed list of items accepted in each of these categories.
