The Township of Langley and the City of Langley will offer the first joint Household Hazardous Waste Plus Recycling Event to provide all of Langley’s residents a convenient site to dispose of hazardous waste.

The annual drive-through, drop-off event will take place on Saturday, Oct. 17, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday, Oct. 18, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Township’s Operations Centre, 4700 224 St.

Acceptable materials may be dropped off for free and proof of residency in the Township or City is required.

Items that can be dropped off include antifreeze, bleach, fluorescent lights, motor oil, oven cleaner, paint thinner, pesticides, empty fuel tanks, swimming pool chemicals, and turpentine.

Electronics, small appliances, mercury thermostats, and smoke detectors will also be collected. For a complete list of items that will be accepted, visit the Township of Langley’s website at tol.ca/hhw.

Residents do not have to wait for the event to dispose of many items, which can be dropped off at various facilities any time of the year. Visit rcbc.ca/recyclepedia.

The Household Hazardous Waste Plus Recycling event is Langley’s kick-off to Canada’s Waste Reduction Week, which runs Oct. 19 to 25 to raise awareness of the environmental and economic issues associated with waste management.

Residents coming out to the event are also encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item for donation to the Langley Food Bank.
