Why have a collection day for Household Hazardous Waste?
Many household items contain hazardous substances that pose health and environmental risks. These substances can leach into the ground water if poured down the drain, thrown in the trash or dumped directly onto the ground. At our collection day, hazardous household products will be sorted by category, properly packed in drums by a licensed hauler, and disposed of by the method appropriate to the category. The expense of holding a collection day is considerable, please be discriminate about what you bring to be packed and hauled away. You are encouraged to use up the material according to directions or give the unwanted portion to a friend.
