Residents of the Town of Petawawa, the City of Pembroke, the Township of Laurentian Valley, and the Township of North Algona Wilberforce can drop off hazardous or special waste and electronic waste for NO CHARGE at OVWRC’s Environmental Days. Material is also accepted at OVWRC year round.
Residential only, no commercial drop-off. Containers must be 5 gallon (20L) or smaller.
Ensure hazardous waste is in the original or a well-marked container and is properly sealed with no visible leaks. Unlabeled/unidentified products cannot be accepted.
PLEASE NOTE: Tires are no longer accepted at Environmental Days.
2020 Environmental Days
The May 9th and June 6th Environmental Days are cancelled due to requirements for physical distancing. We continue to accept hazardous waste material and electronic waste at the Ottawa Valley Waste Recovery Centre where we are in a better position to ensure the safety of our customers and staff at the facility rather than through a temporary depot set up.
**NOTE NEW TIME**: 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
