Quinte Waste Solutions holding hazardous waste recycling day

Quinte Waste Solutions logo

Do you have a stockpile of old paint, a drawer full of dead batteries or maybe a half dozen burnt out Compact Fluorescent Light (CFL) bulbs? If the answer is yes, you are not alone. Most people find that over the course of a year or two they accumulate a quantity of leftover, unwanted hazardous waste. No one wants to put these things in the garbage, but many don’t know what else to do.

Hazards don’t have to be horrifying.

Dispose of them properly at the Quinte Waste Solutions Hazardous & Electronic Waste depot located at 75 Wallbridge Crescent in Belleville.

Plus, you can get a FREE orange box while supplies last!

Hazardous waste is not accepted in the blue box.
