Niagara County Legislator Will Collins announced registration is open for the county’s next household hazardous waste (HHW) collection event, which will be held Saturday, Oct. 8, in the Town of Lockport. The event is open to all county residents, but registration is required.
Collins said the event will be held from 9 a.m. to noon at the Town of Lockport Municipal Center, 6560 Dysinger Road. Registration can be done by going to www.rethinkyourwaste.com/events and scrolling down to the Lockport event. There is also a list of items that will be accepted for recycling posted to that website.
Niagara County Environmental Coordinator Dawn Timm said that, in the 10 years the HHW program has been operating, more than 900,000 pounds of harmful products have been removed from Niagara County homes.
“The steps we take to encourage the recycling of paint and other HHW in a responsible manner ensures these materials do not end up in our soil or in our water, protecting our local environment,” Timm said.
