Free Household Hazardous Waste Events Postponed

Because of weather, the Thompson-Nicola Regional District has postponed its free annual Household Hazardous Waste Round-up events in Merritt and Cache Creek by one week:
This is your chance to clear out all those old cleaners, chemicals, and unknown products from the garage or under your sink.

    Saturday, October 31 | 10:00 am to 2:00 pm
  • Cache Creek Visitor Information Centre Parking Lot
    Sunday, November 1 | 10:00 am to 2:00 pm

Household hazardous waste is any waste from your home that is considered to be dangerous or which you have reason to believe could be hazardous. Commonly accepted examples of hazardous waste includes paint, batteries, oil, antifreeze, flammables, poisons, corrosives, adhesives, grease/tar, gasoline/kerosene, pesticides, fertilizers, devices containing mercury, and pool or lab chemicals.
