Household Hazardous Waste (HHW)

HHW.jpg
Stop!! “Hazardous Household Waste” includes products we use every day around the house, such as batteries, unused household cleaners, paint and solvents. These should not be thrown in your trash, poured down the sink, flushed down the toilet, or thrown into your backyard. Sewage treatment plants may not be able to filter out 100% of the contaminants. Improper disposal contaminates groundwater and kills native plant and animals. There is a better option.

Ontario County - Hazardous Household Collection Days

Casella Waste Systems and Ontario County are sponsoring 2 free Hazardous Household Waste Collection events each year for County residents.
