The twenty-first annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day for our residents will be held on Saturday, October 21, 2017. Last year 288 registered for the event delivering the equivalent of 1,880 gallons of hazardous waste. This year Environmental Projects Inc. out of Auburn will be on site to safely collect, consolidate and transport the hazardous waste to licensed disposal facilities.

The collection on Saturday will run from 9 am to 1 pm. Pre-registration is required and a resident may pre-register by calling 1-800-397-5830 at any time (this is a only number to call to pre-register). When you call be sure to have ready the list of materials and quantity of materials you will be bringing. Besides providing your material list you will need to provide your name, mailing address and phone number. The caller will then be given a time slot to bring their HHW materials to the Public Works garage on Saturday, October 21st.
