Hazardous and Electronic Waste (E-Waste) are items such as batteries, paint, solvents, computers, chemicals and cell phones that can create toxic leachate if put in the landfill. Each year, Beaumont offers a free drop-off event for residents to dispose of their hazardous and e-waste so that these items do not end up in our local Waste Management Facility. You can find information on our annual round-up event here.
Benefits of Proper Disposal
Proper disposal of household hazardous waste and electronic waste (e-waste) is good for our environment. Many of these materials can be recycled into new and useful products. Others are disposed of safely, keeping chemicals and other toxic materials out of the Waste Management Facility.
Take your household hazardous waste and e-waste to the City of Edmonton's Eco Station or the Leduc and District Regional Waste Management Facility for proper disposal.
