The Household Special Waste Depot and drop off area at the landfill will reopen on Tuesday, May 26 for public use.

Residents are reminded not to dispose of household special waste like paint, batteries, and bleach through curbside garbage collection. These hazardous items can be safely disposed of at the Household Special Waste Depot at 3502 Manning Drive.

Residents can also drop of leaves and brush, Blue Box recyclables, tires, electronics like TVs and monitors, and scrap metal. Please note fees apply for some items.

“Our waste and recycling teams are working tirelessly to make sure London stays clean and our facilities can continue to operate safely,” says Jay Stanford, Director of Environment, Fleet and Solid Waste. “We appreciate the patience of Londoners as we adapt to the impacts of COVID-19, and can now reopen these facilities for the public to use.”
