How to Get Rid of Expired Bear Spray?

Lisa C. Community, Newcomer Information

Welcome to today’s Residential Recycling & Disposal Info for Newcomers!

Never put bear spray into your blue cart. Safely dispose of bear spray and pepper spray for free at a household hazardous waste drop-off.
You can bring up to 20 litres of household chemicals per week.
  • Designated fire station – put in secure bear spray bin.
  • City landfill Throw ‘n’ Go area

Check this map for Household hazardous drop-off locations in Calgary. If you bring with other garbage, landfill charges will apply.

Word of the Day:

Hazardous: risky, dangerous
