Household Hazardous Waste Event 2020


Every year, the annual Household Hazardous Waste Event proves to be a popular event with residents of the Langley’s. Due to COVID-19, Public Health Orders related to large gatherings, and the anticipated number of participants based on prior years’ attendance, this fall’s event is postponed until further notice.

Residents look forward to the event each year and often save up hazardous waste and other items for disposal and recycling. Until such time as the event can be rescheduled, most likely in 2021, we encourage residents to consider alternatives:

Find local recycling and disposal for hazardous items

Residents can search Metro Vancouver Recycles to find year-round locations for dropping-off items such as electronics, paint and solvents, tires, and more. Lists of locations are mapped to help residents find locations most convenient to them.

Find a general list of local recycling depots via Recycle BC and more information regarding recycling or disposing of hazardous waste.

Store items until the event returns

Residents can continue to store items until the next Household Hazardous Waste Event if they are unable to make it to a recycling depot or drop-off location.
