Household Hazardous Toxic Roundup

Back to Services
1 Mon 2015 Nuvex Comments: 0

DBS Environmental (DBS) has been involved in the Household Hazardous Roundup program from its creation over 19 years ago.

We are the creators of the “Mobile Roundup Centre” for which we received the Emerald Award. We service communities around the province.

The Roundup program is able to adapt to the needs of the communities. DBS can offer this service to all areas of Alberta.

The Household Hazardous Toxic Roundups allow communities to offer their residents a method to dispose of their household hazardous waste.  Roundups are held on specific days allowing citizens to drop off their materials that they no longer want or need.

DBS supplies waste handling services for the roundup.  This includes the identification, classification, packaging and transfer of household wastes collected at the roundup.  This also includes the stewardship programs for paint and electronics.

Alberta Environment “Action Waste” pays for the costs of disposal of wastes collected at the Roundups.  The cost of excluded items that are collected are the responsibility of the community. (Phone for a list of these excluded items).

How it works

  • Event sponsor chooses a date and location
  • Event sponsor must have an authorized signed agreement with DBS Environmental
  • Costs will vary depending on amount of time and quantities of waste collected
  • DBS staff and roundup centre will come and run the roundup
  • Event sponsor must provide volunteers for the roundup
  • Volunteers are needed to direct traffic, greet people, accept household wastes and bring wastes to the roundup center
  • DBS personnel will sort, identify and package the waste (no waste is processed or bulked on site)
  • All waste volumes will be tallied and compiled
  • Area will be cleaned up before DBS leaves the sites
  • Roundups can include the stewardship programs for paint products and electronics programs
  • Commercial/Industrial Waste which includes schools and town operations, can be collected provided a prearranged disposal agreement has been made for a preset fee
