As a reminder, residents who can use the regular HHW program offered on Tuesday, Thursday, and
Friday of each week are encouraged to do so. This Saturday collection is no different from the
weekly program but is meant to facilitate residents who work or are otherwise unable to participate
during the week. Please keep in mind that wait times will be longer on a Saturday drop-off day.
Assessed households may bring up to 10 gallons (or 60 pounds) of HHW for proper disposal on
Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, or on quarterly Saturday drop-off days from 9:00am until 1:00pm,
for no additional charge. Every pound above those amounts will cost .35 cents each.
Acceptable waste products include, but are not limited to: paint supplies, automotive products,
poisons, pesticides, cleaning products, etc.
When arriving at the landfill, residents will be instructed to wait in line until parked in front
of the facility, then leave their vehicle with a receipt from the scale house. A faculty member
will meet residents in their car with a cart to move and weigh any product waste.
