Household Hazardous Materials Depot Grand Opening Week
The City of Regina has officially opened the new Household Hazardous Materials Depot for residents to safely drop off hazardous household items year-round, located next to the Landfill on Fleet Street. Materials accepted include chemicals, fertilizers, aerosols, batteries, used oil, propane tanks, lightbulbs and more. The Depot is made possible with the operational support of Product Care Recycling and the Saskatchewan Association for Resource Recovery Corp. (SARRC).
“We commend the City of Regina and Product Care for partnering to open Saskatchewan’s first household hazardous materials depot,” said Environment Minister Dana Skoropad. “Our province is home to one of the most robust lists of recycling programs in the country, and I am so pleased to see another service being added right here in Regina. When waste is managed responsibly, it protects the health and safety of Saskatchewan residents and the environment for our future generations.”
For grand opening week only, the new depot will be open to residents all week long, from Monday, November 21 to Saturday, November 26, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. After opening week, the Depot will begin its regular operating hours: Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“We are pleased to be providing residents with a more convenient way to dispose of their hazardous materials,” says Mayor Sandra Masters. “Expanding this service to year-round will help increase our waste diversion efforts and reduce potential environmental impacts to our community.”
Normal Operating Hours – Effective December 2, 2022
Fridays and Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
- For everyone’s safety, all materials should be left in the original container or labelled to allow for contents to be identified. Do not mix products together.
- Site signage will direct residents to the appropriate disposal area.
- Residents will need to take their material to the attendants in the buildings to be sorted.
- Commercial loads are not permitted.
All materials dropped off at the Household Hazardous Materials Depot will be recycled or safely disposed of. This is another step towards the City of Regina’s goal to divert 65 per cent of residential waste away from the landfill and keeping hazardous material out of our waterways.
