Published August 20, 2021 at 4:12 pm
It’s Diversion Day tomorrow morning in Durham Region, and that means you can drop off electronic or household hazardous waste and good quality reusable items, free of charge.
The Diversion Day event will be held from 8 a.m. to noon at Don Beer Arena (rear parking lot) at 940 Dillingham Road in Pickering.
Durham is encouraging residents to bring end-of-life electronics, such as cellular phones, cameras and computers, for free recycling; and to drop off reusable items such as clothes, home décor and bedding.
Residents can also dispose of household hazardous waste, such as antifreeze, batteries, fuel, paint, household chemicals and medications, and keep these toxic materials from entering local ecosystems and water sources.
