Timmins is running their Hazardous and Special Waste Day on Saturday, from 8:00am to 2:00pm in the Sportsplex parking lot. Residents can throw out any hazardous or special waste, like aerosol cans, paint, or propane tanks, at no cost.

Environmental Compliance Coordinator Scott Tam says offering the service allows the city to keep hazardous materials out of the landfill, which protects the environments and stops chemicals from potentially getting into the water system.
