We describe HHW as anything liquid ‘that you would not want to drink’.  Items typically collected include paint, oil, herbicides and pesticides.  If you don’t know what it is, bring it on.  We will have a chemist on site to test, load, and remove all material on the 19th.


We will also be collecting Electronics such as computers (and all periphery) and televisions, cameras, recorders ,etc.


Be advised – our schedule is limited to the first 360 to secure a slot.
