Household Hazardous Waste

September 18 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Free
Household Hazardous Waste Collection is approaching! The collection will take place at the FIRE HALL on Saturday, September 18, 2021 from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm. There is no cost to dispose of your household hazardous waste during this special collection.
Household hazardous wastes are the left-over products from hazardous products used in the home. Some of these wastes exhibit poisonous, combustible, explosive and/or flammable properties. When compared with other types of wastes, HHW are a small component of the waste stream.
If HHW are discarded into residential solid waste stream, the storm sewer system, or the natural environment, environmental damage may occur. If products are improperly stored in the home there may be negative impacts on the health of the residents.
Household Hazardous Items:
Oil & Latex Paint
Paint Thinners & Stain
Motor Oil
Batteries
Aerosol Cans
Propane Tanks (Large & Small)
Used Cooking Oil
Fluorescent Lightbulbs (Compact & Tubes)
Fire Extinguishers
Things to Remember:
Materials from contractors and businesses will not be accepted.
Seal containers securely where possible (screw tops, paint lids, etc.)
Don’t put items in tied plastic bags; instead transport in open-topped boxes where possible.
Bring the materials in the trunk of your car to be safe.
Please make sure all propane tanks have the valves closed and that there is plenty of ventilation in your vehicle.
We recommend that you wear gloves when handling products.
What NOT to bring:
Empty paint cans that can be disposed of during regular curbside collection
Explosives and ammunitions
Fireworks
PCBs
Biomedical waste (ex: syringes)
