HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE

The Hillside Waste Transfer Station operates under DGH&T Act License 229 HW R allowing it to collect Household Hazardous Waste (HHW).

 Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) accepted at the Hillside Waste Transfer Station includes: 

  • Aerosols
  • Batteries
  • Fluorescent / CFL Bulbs
  • Paint Products
  • Compressed Gas (Propane Tanks)
  • Used Oil Products and Materials

 

ECOCENTRE COLLECTION DEPOT

The Rural Municipality of Springfield, in conjunction with the Manitoba Association for Resource Recovery Corporation entered into agreement to establish, develop, implement and maintain a used oil products and material stewardship program.

The Hillside Waste Transfer Station is a fully operational EcoCentre for the purpose of collecting used oil, filters and used oil containers.

Collect used oil from your vehicle, lawn mower, farm equipment or other machinery and place it in its original container for disposal. 

Collect your used oil filters and containers, and place the filters in a clean container for disposal.

Return your used oil products to the Hillside Waste Transfer Station where the staff will be happy to assist you.

Do not contaminate the oil with other liquids.   Solvents, paint thinner, bleaches, antifreeze, gasoline, PCB, household chemicals, insecticides, herbicides, pesticides, grease or water are not acceptable.  

Which used oil products can be dropped off at the ECO Center:

Oil - any petroleum or synthetic crankcase oil, engine oil, hydraulic fluid, transmission fluid, gear oil, heat transfer fluid or other fluid used for lubricating purposes in machinery or equipment.

Oil Filters - any spin-on or element oil filter used in hydraulic, transmission or internal combustion engine applications - includes diesel fuel filters but does not include gasoline fuel filters.

Oil Containers - any plastic container with a capacity of less than 30 litres that is manufactured to hold oil.

Antifreeze - any ethylene glycol or propylene glycol vehicle engine coolant.

Antifreeze Containers - any plastic container with a capacity of less than 30 litres that is manufactured to                                       hold antifreeze.

Used oil filters and plastic oil containers can be recycled into other useful products. With a program and proper return facilities now in place, western Canadians can:

  • Recover more used oil, filters and containers;
  • Extend the life of a non-renewable natural resource;
  • Provide the recycling industry with oil, plastic and steel;
  • Decrease pollution caused by improper disposal. Reduce the amount of non-biodegradable materials in our landfills.
