[ARCHIVED] Safe Recycling of Household Hazardous Waste

April 2024 HHW Bus Campaign (1)

Hey Cowichan,

Keep an eye out around town for our new bus ads featuring the safe recycling of household hazardous waste (HHW).  Did you know that household hazardous materials can cause serious safety problems such as fires and explosions when improperly disposed of?  

Let’s work together to keep these items out of curbside recycling and garbage totes!

Hazardous materials include: 

  • Batteries
  • Electronics
  • Solvents
  • Pesticides
  • Flammable Liquids
  • Gasoline
  • Propane Canisters/Bottles

Please take these items to a Recycling Centre to be properly handled and recycled.

Check out for more info!  Unsure of what goes where?  Download the Cowichan Recycles app or use the Cowichan Recylopedia app to ensure that you are Recycling Right.
