Proper HHW Management Protects
Public Health and the Environment
Many common products are hazardous because they contain chemicals that are toxic, corrosive, flammable or reactive. Improper disposal (pouring down the drain, on the ground, into storm sewers, or in some cases putting them out with the trash) can harm the environment and a pose a threat to human health.
New Year, New Prices
Happy New Year!
With all the new changes a new year brings, we also are going through some changes. Latex paint disposal will go from 0.20 cents per pound, to 0.25 cents per pound for disposal.
While this decision was hard, we want you to know it is only temporary! Your latex paint needs to be sent farther away for disposal right now, and because of the increase in transporting it farther away, prices had to go up to cover the cost of proper disposal. Once we can send the latex paint back to a local source, the price will go back to 0.20 cents per pound.
Thank you for your patience and understanding, and thanks for recycling!
