Waste and Recycling Services is encouraging residents to properly recycle their household hazardous waste by hosting a waste 'round up' and BBQ.
On May 4, 2019, residents can bring their paint, electronics, batteries, aerosol cans, household cleaners, and more to the Recycle Depot as a reminder that these items are accepted at the depot and should never be placed in residential waste or the recycling carts.
Regular depot hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. but from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. residents can enjoy a free BBQ. Also, anyone who brings household hazardous waste to the round up will be entered to win a prize.
The City of Airdrie is excited to be apart of Airdrie's London Drug's 'Community Clean-up Day'.
The City will be at the event, held in the Airdrie London Drug's Parking lot:
