Washington County DPW is planning on offering a household hazardous waste collection day for County citizens at the County Municipal Center in Ft. Edward tentative date Saturday Nov 11 9am to 1pm (subject to possible change).
This would be free and is meant to collect old hazardous material you may have hanging around the house that you did not know how to throw away like; Oil Paint, solvents, pool chemicals, acids, old gas and oil mix, herbicides, pesticides, fertilizer, insecticides, etc.
The County is considering placing limits of 200 lbs dry material and 200 gallons liquids on each vehicle that attends.
This is meant only for residential households, not commercial.
I will have more info and confirm the date in the near future but for the time being, start gathering your stuff together. To my knowledge, the County has never held this before and it may be many years until it is held again. Take advantage of it now.
