What Do I Do With...?
Some cosmetics are considered household hazardous waste (HHW). HHW MUST NOT be included in your curbside garbage, recycling, or poured down the drain. HHW, if not disposed of properly, can be harmful to people, animals and the environment. Please collect old and/or unwanted cosmetics (e.g. acetone nail polish remover, nail polish, liquid eye liner, liquid foundation etc.) and take these items to a Household Hazardous Waste Depot at your local Community Recycling Centre (CRC) for proper disposal, free of charge. For CRC locations, visit Community Recycling Centres.
For another way to recycle your HHW visit 'Make the Drop'.
