By County of Lambton

Wyoming, ON - The popular Household Hazardous Waste Days, co-sponsored by the County of Lambton Public Works Department and Clean Harbors Canada Inc., will be changing locations in June and will offer Lambton County residents an opportunity to dispose household hazardous waste at no cost.

The one-day only mobile Household Hazardous Waste Collection event will be held on Saturday, June 16, 2018 from 9:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. at the Lambton College Parking Lot located at 1457 London Road in Sarnia.          

"Corrosive, toxic, reactive and flammable materials will be collected at the mobile event," says Matt Deline, Public Works Manager, County of Lambton.  "These items should never be placed in a regular landfill because they have the potential to injure workers and damage the environment."
