How can I dispose of pesticides?

Pesticides should never be disposed of through storm sewers or household drains. Pesticides may be taken to the Biggar Bottle Depot at 2577 Kingsway Avenue, Port Coquitlam or the Coquitlam Transfer Station at 1200 United Boulevard, Coquitlam where they accept, free of charge, consumer pesticides that have both the poisonous (skull and crossbones) symbol and Pest Control Product (PCP) number. Unidentifiable products will not be accepted and returned products must be in clearly marked and tightly sealed containers. Maximum container size is 10 litres. Visit the ProductCare Recycling website for further information.

Unused pesticide products having no labels may be picked-up by a hazardous waste company. Phone the British Columbia Recycling Hotline at 604-732-9253 (RECYCLE) or visit the Recycling Council of British Columbia website for more information on companies in your area.
