The Household Hazardous Waste Facility and Product ReUse Center have closed for the season.  The last day open was Tuesday, October 28th.  The facility reopens on the first Tuesday in April, 2015 (see schedule below).  If you have household hazardous waste to dispose of, please follow these simple steps to safely store your items over the winter:
 
  • Keep products away from heat sources, such as furnaces, as many release dangerous gases if they catch fire
  • Do not store products where they can freeze
  • Keep products in the original containers, with labels attached
  • Do not mix products
  • Keep out of the reach of children and pets
