The Halifax Recycling Center will only be collecting household hazardous waste one time per year. All household hazardous waste must be in the original labeled sealed container, containers that are leaking and rusted will not be accepted. No Commercial or Industrial Hazardous Waste.
The Town will hold a hazardous waste collection day on Saturday, November 9. The hours shown are tentative. Actual hours and details will be posted closer to the day of the event.
If you cannot wait for Household Hazardous Waste day and need to dispose of materials, visit the South Shore Recycling Cooperative web site, click on Hazardous Waste (We are an out of town resident) for info on Household Hazardous Waste collection events in nearby towns. Please be advised there is a charge to dispose of your hazardous waste at the out of town events. Make sure you bring a check payable to Stericycle Environmental.
