Hazardous Household Waste Day Saturday May 20

ST. JOHNSBURY/BURKE HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE COLLECTION ON MAY 20, 2017

 

On Saturday, May 20, 2017 from 9 am to 1 pm the Town of St Johnsbury, the Town of Burke, Casella Waste Management, Inc. and the Agency of Natural Resources will be co-sponsoring a Spring Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day. This event will be held at the St Johnsbury Municipal Parking Lot on North Main Street. So, if you are a resident or a small business in the Town of St. Johnsbury or the Town of Burke and have household hazardous wastes like pool chemicals, solvents and degreasers, oven and drain cleaners, old gasoline and paint thinners, you can bring up to 10 gallons of these wastes and all your pesticides, oil based and latex architectural paints and alkaline batteries at no charge for proper disposal. Residents can also bring all their compact fluorescent lamps and up to 10 additional fluorescent tubes at no charge. If you have any mercury thermostats we will give you a coupon that can be submitted for a $5.00 rebate from the Thermostat Recycling Corporation. The thermostats have to be complete units to qualify for the rebate. We request that conditionally exempt small quantity generators of hazardous waste who are participating in this event preregister by calling the St. Johnsbury Town Manager’s Office at 748-3926 by May 18, 2017 and indicate the type and approximate quantity of waste you are bringing to this event. These businesses are encouraged to come to this event between 9 am and 11 am if possible. While you're at the Household Hazardous Waste Collection, you can visit the paint drop and swap where folks can bring good cans of paint that they don’t need and you can pick these up and use them for your painting tasks. If you have a mercury thermometer, we will swap you for a digital thermometer at the HHW event at no charge. One digital thermometer per family. As a result of recently implemented Product Stewardship Legislation dealing with architectural oil and latex paint and alkaline batteries we will be able to accept all of this material at no charge during this event. We cannot accept explosives, ammunition, asbestos, propane and other compressed gas cylinders, radioactive or infectious waste or used motor oil. If you have used motor oil, it can be brought to the Casella Transfer Station on High Street in St. Johnsbury for disposal. There is a .50 per gallon charge for that service. On the day of the Hazardous Waste Collection you can also bring car or pickup truck tires with or without rims to the High Street Transfer Station for $2.50 each. Up to 6 fluorescent tubes of any size or shape can be taken to the Aubuchon Hardware Store during regular business hours for recycling at no charge.

If you have any questions about these activities you can contact the St. Johnsbury Town Manager
at 748-3926 or John Malter at 244-7373.
