Enhanced Pesticide Management Program

Pesticide Disposal

Domestic pesticides are hazardous substances and must be disposed of properly. The City's Recycling Depot accepts consumer pesticides that have both the poisonous symbol (skull and crossbones) and a Pest Control Product (PCP) number (e.g. PCP Reg. #2464). The maximum accepted container size is 10 litres.

The City’s Recycling Depot is located at 5555 Lynas Lane (close to River Road) and is open from Wednesday to Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:15 p.m. It is closed on Mondays, Tuesdays, and all statutory holidays.

Hazardous pesticides require proper neutralization, and are not allowed in household garbage or in Landfills. Never dispose of pesticides into nature, storm drains, or down household drains.

Hazardous waste disposal companies will pick up unknown or leftover pesticides in containers without labels for a fee. Please call the RCBC Recycling Hotline at 604-RECYCLE (604-732-9253) for hazardous waste disposal companies.
