Tomorrow the Toxic and E-Waste Roundup will be taking place

The roundup will be happening from 8 am to 5 pm at the Eco-Station 6108 46 Street Leduc. 

At no charge, and all year round, the eco station accepts household toxic, e-waste, recyclable material, and organic material.

Examples of household toxic waste include paint, aerosol cans, solvents, abrasive cleaners, insecticides, bleach, carpet cleaner, glue, hair coloring, nail polish, wax and weed killer.

Examples of electronic waste, or e-waste, include computers, computer cables, computer mice, keyboards, CD players, digital cameras, electronic games, iPods, radios, phones, printers, and TVs.

Last year the station had over 27 thousand visits. This lead to over 60 tonnes of e-waste and nearly one hundred thousand liters of household hazardous waste. (AJS/THEONE)
