Municipalities need reliable and cost-effective management of household hazardous waste. As the largest Canadian provider of these services, you can count on Terrapure to deliver the right turnkey program for your operation.
What We Do
Through our hazardous waste processing facilities and mobile field service operations, we deliver custom Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) management services that include collection, processing and recycling. We are well equipped to process paints, solvents, pesticides, motor oil and gasoline, fluorescent lighting, batteries, pharmaceuticals, acids, bases and aerosols.
Beyond collection and disposal, Terrapure hosts dedicated HHW collection days for municipalities, manages HHW depots, and provides education and training to municipal staff.
How We Do It
Our experts perform a comprehensive analysis of your municipality’s current system and its goals. With that information, we create an HHW management program that is streamlined and sustainable with a focus on diversion and recycling, and compliant with all regulatory requirements.
Understanding that municipalities are always under pressure to control costs, we are careful to design programs that maximize efficiencies and find ways to reduce costs. For example, we recover reusable products and divert material from costly disposal, wherever possible.
