Household Hazardous Wastes

Products marked "Dangerous", "Flammable", and "Corrosive" are usually hazardous materials.  Never dispose of potentially hazardous products down sinks, toilets, storm drains, or in rivers and streams.  Seek alternate products that are either less hazardous or non-hazardous, and:

  • Use non-hazardous cleaning products, such as baking soda and vinegar.
  • Dispose of all hazardous wastes, including pesticides, paints and flammable products, through a licensed disposal facility.  These materials may be disposed of free of charge at the Chilliwack Bottle Depot, 45934 Trethewey Ave, if they are in the original packaging.
  • Household hazardous wastes may also be disposed of, free of charge, at the City of Chilliwack's Household Hazardous Waste Day, held annually in October.
  • Recycle used motor oil.  Just one litre of motor oil can contaminated one million litres of drinking water.  Dispose of motor oil, filters, and containers at a oil recycling location: http://usedoilrecycling.com/en/bc
