HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE COLLECTION DAY TO BE HELD SATURDAY, OCT. 2

Many items normally used around the house such as paint, cleaners, motor oil and pesticides are considered hazardous waste and could pose a serious threat to your family's health and/or the environment. To know whether a product is hazardous, read the label. If you see words like "danger," "warning," "caution," or "poison," these materials are hazardous and can not go into the trash, washed down storm drains or household drains.

The Watauga County Sanitation Department will host a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day (HHWD) on Saturday, Oct. 2 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. to provide residents a safe, convenient and environmentally responsible way to dispose of their household hazardous waste. No commercial waste will be accepted.

In order to ensure a safe collection of these materials:

  • Please stay in your vehicle during the entire collection. This is for your safety and is required by our disposal contractor’s permit. We will take care of everything, so just sit back and relax.
  • Bring your waste in their original containers whenever possible. Please make sure all containers are closed. It is dangerous to transport open containers.
  • Do not mix different products.
  • Collect your waste containers in disposable boxes or bins, which should be transported in your trunk. Do not put your HHW in the backseat with your children or pets.
  • No smoking in your car--most HHW are flammable.

WHEN: Saturday, Oct. 2, 2010

9:00 a.m.— 2:00 p.m.

WHERE: Watauga County Landfill

336 Landfill Road

WHAT: Paint (If there is only a small amount of paint left in can, open container and let dry or add kitty litter or oil dry. Once dry, this can be disposed of in the garbage.)
