Did you know many of the chemicals we have in our households could be considered hazardous if used or disposed of in an improper way? The City hopes a permanent disposal facility will discourage disposal of household pollutants down sanitary sewers, storm drains, or into the trash and recycling systems, which pose a risk for the environment, water sources, wastewater collection and treatment systems, and for staff handling the household pollutant materials in the trash and recycling systems.
All wastes are subject to inspection and possible rejection. If wastes are not accepted by the facility it is the customers' responsibility to dispose of the waste properly and within federal, state and local laws.
