The “re-use” table puts household hazardous waste to good use. Need some lawn chemicals? Looking for half a can of rust remover?  Experienced site chemists will sort through everything that comes in, setting the still usable items on a special table.  These carefully chosen items are yours to take – at no charge! Stop by and see what might be available.

WASTE PREVENTION TIPS!
Buy only what you need and use it up.
If you end up with products left over, share them with family, friends and neighbors.
Read labels before you buy. Watch for words like “danger”, “warning”, and “caution”.
Follow directions carefully. Whenever possible, consider using a safer alternative.
Dispose of left over items safely at our annual Household Hazardous Waste Event!
