Hazardous Household Waste Collection Will Be Held August 29th

The Household Hazardous Waste Collection that was cancelled in May, will be held on Saturday, August 29th from 9 a.m. to noon at the Elk County Community Recycling Center on Washington Street in St. Marys.

Each year since 2005 the county has sponsored a one-day household hazardous waste collection.  In 2010 we made managing this waste a bit easier by providing an ongoing collection for oil-based coatings and pesticides (see link to paint/pesticide collection), however there are still items that must be handled by a hazardous waste company. Products such as gasoline and kerosene, gas/oil mixes, cleaners, chemicals, and other household chemicals must be managed by a hazardous waste company.
