Madawaska Valley residents are being urged to dispose of their hazardous waste products properly this weekend.

Residents are reminded that hazardous waste is not collected off the curb like regular garbage, and the Madawaska Valley Township has set up a day to dispose of it properly.

Among materials that will be accepted are batteries, flammables, aerosol containers, fire extinguishers, oil containers and toxic materials. Medical waste and any unknown substance will not be accepted.

The township says waste can be brought to the Paul J. Yakabuski Community Centre on August 19th between 10:00am and 4:00pm, and is only open to Madawaska Valley Township residents.

More information about what can and can’t be dropped off is available here.
