Ha­zar­dous col­lec­tions conti­nue Sa­tur­day in SaintLa­zare and Co­teau-du-Lac

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

Now is the time to ga­ther old paints, tires, com­pu­ters, oil, pes­ti­cides and even ex­pi­red me­di­ca­tions.

And the best news is that all such items can be given to people who will make sure they are sa­fe­ly and pro­per­ly re­cy­cled or dis­po­sed of du­ring an an­nual ha­zar­dous hou­se­hold waste col­lec­tion (HHW) being or­ga­ni­zed by the Vau­dreuil-Sou­langes MRC.

This Sa­tur­day, Sep­tem­ber 25 from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Saint-La­zare re­si­dents can clean up by brin­ging items to the Com­mu­ni­ty Centre, 1301, rue du Bois in Saint-La­zare.

On the same day Co­teau-du-Lac re­si­dents can dis­pose of ha­zar­dous items by going to their town’s Mu­ni­ci­pal Ga­rage, lo­ca­ted at 20, che­min de la Ri­vière-De­lisle Nord.

Meanw­hile, Vau­dreuil-Do­rion and Pin­court will al­so hold their own col­lec­tion days on Oc­to­ber 2.

The Pin­court HHW col­lec­tion will take place at the Mu­ni­ci­pal Ga­rage, lo­ca­ted at 750, bou­le­vard Olym­pique, while Vau­dreuilDo­rion’s HHW day will al­so take place Oc­to­ber 2 at 325, rue Marie-Cu­rie.

Those brin­ging items to be dis­po­sed of are as­ked to show proof of where they live.

Other ac­cep­table items for HHW col­lec­tions in­clude pro­pane, acids, sol­vents, pool che­mi­cals, com­pu­ter mo­ni­tors and to­wers, lap­tops, mi­cro­wave ovens and more. Or­ga­ni­zers warn such goods should ne­ver be dis­po­sed of du­ring re­gu­lar gar­bage pi­ckup. Gar­bage col­lec­tors have been in­ju­red in the region in the past when unk­no­win­gly hand­ling toxic or dan­ge­rous sub­stances. Ex­perts say if you are not sure, phone your town or theMRC.
