Household Hazardous Waste Collection
Set for October 15 in Westmoreland County
On Saturday, October 15, 2016, homeowners in Westmoreland County will have the opportunity to dispose of any unwanted hazardous chemicals or products being stored on the home grounds. A no charge poundage limit will be in effect again this year. No fee will be assessed for the first 100 pounds of material – beyond 100 pounds, each homeowner will be charged $1.05 per pound.
Collection for Westmoreland will occur from 7:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the A. T. Johnson Human Services Building parking lot, 18849 Kings Highway, on Route 3 just east of Montross.
Items that will be accepted are home pesticides, paint (particularly oil based), paint thinners and related products, antifreeze, contaminated fuels, household cleaners, old florescent bulbs, rechargeable batteries and any other toxic materials. Latex paints are not hazardous. To reduce weight and fees, let latex paints harden and take to convenience centers with other trash. Participants must be residents of the county.
Those items that cannot be accepted for disposal include tires, car batteries, radioactive materials (including smoke alarms), medical waste, ammunition and explosives.
The program is being sponsored by Westmoreland County in cooperation with the Northern Neck Soil & Water Conservation District, Virginia Cooperative Extension and MXI Environmental Services, LLC. Questions may be directed to the Northern Neck Soil & Water Conservation District at 804-313-9102, X 104, or by email to sam.johnson@nnswcd.org or kathleen.watson@nnswcd.org.
Thanks go to residents for participating in this collection. It helps protect families, land and water resources from contamination by leftover hazardous materials. In 7 years, Westmoreland County collections have totaled 49,796 pounds of material from 319 households.
