The Green Team conducts at least one Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day annually. At these events, residents can dispose of oil-based paint (still in liquid form), pesticides, automotive fluids and batteries, and other types of household wastes not accepted at the curb or at drop-off sites. The cost of these one-day events is considerable, thus the District has to review annual revenues in order to determine if funds are available for two drives in a year.

Please check the Green Team calendar page for details of upcoming Household Hazardous Waste Collection Days.
