The manufacture of goods, the delivery of services, and our activities at home produce unwanted substances called wastes. These include residues from industrial operations such as spent solvents, acids or bases; leftovers from oil refining, the manufacture of chemicals or metal processing; and common household products such as used lube oil, batteries, leftover paints, old drugs, pesticides, or cleaning agents.
When these substances are going for final disposal they are called wastes. However, many can be managed as a resource for further beneficial use and then we known them recyclables.

Close to six million fluorescent and high intensity discharge (HID) lamps, containing mercury, are disposed of in Alberta every year. With each lamp containing on average 15 milligrams of mercury there is a reservoir of mercury in the province’s waste stream of close to 87.5 kilograms. While this may seem like a small amount, its release into the environment is of great concern.
Interprovincial Manifest Form
A hazardous waste manifest is required for all transborder shipments; therefore, a Personal Identification Number (receiver number) will also be required. Applications for this number can be obtained from the Environmental Policy Branch.
