Roseridge holding second Household Hazardous Waste Round-Up in Gibbons this Saturday

Roseridge Landfill Commission is hosting a Hazardous Waste Round-up on Saturday, Nov. 20 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Gibbons Public Works Yard (5127 41 Street).

The event is in partnership with Alberta Recycling Management Authority and is your chance to clean up those old paints and other household hazardous waste items and help Roseridge keep them out of the landfill.

Unlike visiting the Landfill, no landfill pass is required for this event. All Sturgeon County residents are welcome.

Roseridge Manager Susan Berry said the U9 Team 2 Mustangs from Sturgeon Hockey Club will be there accepting automotive batteries during the event as a fundraiser for tournament fees.

This is the second event. A similar event took place in Morinville on Saturday, Nov. 6.
