CONCERNS WITH HHW

Anywhere along the disposal route - from your curb to our facilities-  chemicals can present a threat to the public, solid waste workers, and the environment if not properly disposed. Residents are encouraged to separate HHW from their household garbage and dispose of it in an appropriate manner.
