How to Sort Your Waste
Perfume, essential oil or cologne and bottlePlease make sure that the bottle is empty and dry. The empty bottle is considered garbage since it is not the same as a pickle jar or glass juice bottle. If there is still perfume/cologne/scented oil in the bottle it is considered Household Hazardous Waste (HHW). Household hazardous waste (HHW) MUST NOT be included in your curbside garbage, recycling collection, or poured down the drain. HHW, if not disposed of properly, can be harmful to people, animals and the environment. Please take this item to a Household Hazardous Waste Depot at your local Community Recycling Centre (CRC) for proper disposal, free of charge. There is a daily limit of 80 litres (20 gallons) on this item. For CRC locations please visit Community Recycling Centres Page.
For another way to recycle your HHW visit 'Make the Drop'.
