Hazardous Waste Collection
HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE COLLECTION BEGINS SATURDAY, APRIL 1 AT THE RESIDENTIAL RECYCLING CENTER

Household hazardous wastes are common products found in the home. People usually store these materials for a time and eventually discard the unwanted items and their containers. When products are used according to label directions, most are not hazardous.

Environmental problems can arise, however, if items are not disposed of properly. Do NOT burn, bury, dump (in any yard, toilet or down a storm sewer) or mix leftover products. Chemical containers should not be reused for any other purpose.

Hazardous Waste Collection begins at the Residential Recycling Center (8000 128th Street) on Saturday, April 1. Collection will take place on the first Saturday of every month (through December) from 7:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.

You may bring any products that say: Caution, Combustible, Corrosive, Danger, Flammable, Pesticide, Poison, Reactive, Toxic or Warning. Products will be recycled or disposed of in an environmentally safe manner.

Items not accepted include: biological material or medical wastes, commercial waste, propane cylinders, explosives, radioactive materials, latex paint (not considered hazardous), or tires (please see page 11 of your 2017 Village Calendar and Resource Directory).
