New hazardous materials disposal location for June

The City of Swift Current Infrastructure & Operations Division is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day on Saturday, June 8, from 9: a.m – 3 p.m.

The new collection area will be located right at the City Landfill, near the front entrance for ease of access and safe disposal. Hosting this event at the landfill controls some of the associated costs and allows for the City to provide an additional Household Hazardous Waste Day this year; those details will be released once a date is chosen. 

Residents are welcome to bring hazardous household items for free disposal on June 8th, such as:

•Chemicals

•Solvents

•Old paint (new paint can go directly to SARCAN)

•Aerosol containers

•Glue

•Batteries (also accepted at the City Recycle Depot year-round)

•Pesticides

•Pharmaceuticals

•Fluorescent light bulbs

This service is available to households only. Items from businesses and farms will not be accepted with this program.
