[ARCHIVED] Household Hazardous Waste Day

The greater Skowhegan and Pittsfield area household hazardous waste (HHW), E-waste, and unwanted medication collection will take place Saturday, October 7, 2017 . Locations include the salt and sand shed on the transfer station/Steward Hill road in Skowhegan and 601 Peltoma Ave. in Pittsfield. KVCOG and participating towns have hired Environmental Projects to process and dispose of HHW from area residents. These items include old oil and latex based paint, gas, motor oil, pesticides, cleaners, pool chemicals, TVs, computers and other difficult to get rid of materials that could potentially harm people and pets. KVCOG, in partnership with local law enforcement, will concurrently be hosting our annual unwanted pharmaceutical collection with the goal of keeping these medications out of the water table, lakes and rivers, and also out homes where they can lead to accidental poisoning or abuse. Residents of Skowhegan, Anson, Bingham, Canaan and Madison; Pittsfield, Unity, and Palmyra who would like to participate MUST pre register at their town office to participate.

Skowhegan residents: If you have any questions or would like to register for this event please call 207-474-6904 or stop into the town office (Code Enforcement Office) no later than October 6, 2017.
