Waste Management & Recycling Program
Household Hazardous Waste
We are striving for all Maine citizens to reduce Household Hazardous Waste and to participate in Household Hazardous Waste collections.
Persistent toxic metals and chemicals in hazardous waste items in our home and garage pose a serious threat to the health of children, adults, animals, and the environment when poured in drains, septic tanks, and in the trash, and subsequently incinerated at local municipal waste incinerators. Hazardous materials that are not separated and handled properly generate air, water, and land pollution. See our Household Hazardous Waste Links for more information.

Will be posted throughout the year as we recieve scheduled dates and locations. Environmental Projects, Inc. 2011 schedule.
