Township residents will have the opportunity to get rid of household hazardous waste at no charge. (Commercial and industrial entities are excluded from this program.) The next event is this Saturday, October 10 in West Chester at the Government Services Center located at 601 Westtown Rd., West Chester, PA 19380.
YOU MUST PRE-REGISTER FOR THIS EVENT.
Household Hazardous Waste, or HHW, are products labeled toxic, danger, poison, flammable, etc. These are potentially harmful to people, pets and the environment. They should never be poured down the drain. So, what should you do with the waste?
If you are like many residents, you don't want to throw these materials away but aren't sure what to do with them. They usually sit stored in a garage or shed. The HHW Program is available to all residents. Through the HHW Program, residents can drop off their materials and they will be safely recycled, reused, or disposed of properly. Visit the Chester County SWA website for more information about additional drop-off dates, locations, and what is accepted.
