Three Free Household Hazardous Waste Collection Coming Up


The Nebraska Loess Hills Resource Conservation & Development (RC&D) Council is coordinating a series of three FREE household hazardous waste collections. Hazardous chemical products can be found in almost every home in Nebraska.  A product is considered hazardous if it can catch fire,   react or explode when mixed with other substances, or if it is corrosive or toxic.  Special handling of hazardous chemical products is required to ensure safe disposal and to protect the environment from possible contamination.  Area residents can dispose of paint, stain, varnish, lawn and garden chemicals, cleaning chemicals, insecticides, batteries, fluorescent light bulbs, car batteries, used oil, antifreeze and most other household chemical materials at any of the following three FREE collections:

 

Friday, October 2nd from 3:00-6:00 p.m.

at the Washington County Recycling Center, 440 S. 3rd St. in Blair.

Saturday, October 3rd from 8:00-9:30 a.m. at the Winnebago Facilities Building in Winnebago

on the west side of Hwy 77 at the south end of Winnebago.

Saturday October 3rd from 12:00-2:00p.m. at North Bend Central High School, 1320 Walnut in North Bend.

 

These collections will NOT accept tires, electronic equipment, appliances, PCBs, Picric Acid, Science Lab Materials, radioactive materials or biological hazards.

 

Materials received at these collections will be recycled if possible, or disposed of in a safe and environmentally sensitive manner. These collections are funded through a grant from the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality. For more information, contact www.nlhrcd.org or Jean Schultz at the Nebraska Loess Hills RC&D Council office (402)685-4020, email: jschultz @nlhrcd.org.  Volunteers are always needed for these events, please contact Jean Schultz.
