Pollock's Hardware Co-op

Pollock's Hardware Co-op is no longer a depot for recycling CFLs or paint due to the inability to provide proper storage and space to safely recycle these items.  We are sorry for any inconvenience.  
Please read the information provided below from the city of Winnipeg's website or go to
http://winnipeg.ca/waterandwaste/recycle/howToRecycle.stm
to know how to properly dispose of these and other items.

FOR PAINT

"Leftover paint should never be dumped into sewers or drains. Homeowners should take their leftover oil-based (alkyd) and latex paint to the household hazardous waste collection depot for free disposal. Information on the depot locations and hours of operation is also available by calling the recycling and garbage information line at 204-986-8888, Code 9811 or contacting 311.

Businesses must contact a licensed hazardous waste disposal company to dispose of their paint. They can also contact the Habitat for Humanity Winnipeg ReStore, a building supply store that accepts and resells quality new and used building materials, about donating new, full cans of mis-tinted or over-stock paint directly from suppliers and manufacturers. They do not accept paint from the general public."

FOR CFL'S

Fluorescent lights
You can take fluorescent lights to the household hazardous waste collection depot for free disposal. Information on the depot locations and hours of operation is also available by calling our recycling and garbage information line at 204-986-8888, Code 9811 or contacting 311. Fluorescent lights will only be picked up inside your garbage cart if they are in a box that is securely taped shut.

Compact fluorescent lights (CFLs)
Compact fluorescent lights contain small amounts of mercury. Just like batteries, thermostats and other household items containing mercury, you should dispose of used bulbs safely. You can find your nearest depot at Green Manitoba by checking off "Household Fluorescent Lights/Lamps." You can also take used CFL bulbs to the household hazardous waste collection depot for free disposal. Information on the depot locations and hours of operation is also available by calling our recycling and garbage information line at 204-986-8888, Code 9811 or contacting 311.

Welcome To Pollock's Hardware Co-op

Pollock's Hardware Co-op is one of Winnipeg's oldest and coolest hardware stores! Established in 1922 we are one of the few independent hardware stores to make it through the boom of big box stores. While thriving in the North End we are committed to staying true to our community, our members and Winnipeg. To add to that we partnered with Build and MGR and with that are now proud owners Winnipeg's first Social Enterprise Centre. The S.E.C. is making a huge impact on Winnipeg as it is promoting and providing space for many of Winnipeg's social enterprises. Pollock's Hardware Co-op is all about community, tradition, and staying true to the word of small independent businesses. Big box stores have nothing on the little hardware store that could! We now have a 3rd location in South Osborne as well! You would be amazed at how much product we squeezed in to that place! Like a mini version of our North End store you would think it was there forever! A must see! A big giant thank you to all our members, share holders, our awesome board and devoted employees.... we wouldn't be here with out you!
