E-M:/ HHW Collection for Genesee County

Enviro-Mich message from Darren Bagley <bagleyd@msue.msu.edu>


  On Saturday, October 19th, from 10:00am until 2:00pm, the Genesee County 
Household Hazardous Waste Consortium is sponsoring a household hazardous 
waste collection day.  Three locations will be available for residents to 
drop off their hazardous waste free of charge:  1) Davison High School; and 
2) Fenton High School.  Materials for collection include batteries, old 
pesticides and herbicides, paint thinners, oil-based paint, household 
chemicals, aerosol cans, mercury and other household hazards.  As part of 
the collection, individuals can exchange their old mercury thermometers for 
new digital thermometers while supplies last.  Materials not accepted 
include latex paint, medical, radioactive and explosive wastes.  This 
program is open to all residents of Genesee County.
         Last spring, Genesee County residents disposed of 80,000 pounds 
hazardous waste through this program, protecting both the environment and 
our health.  This program has collected over 1,000,000 pounds of toxic 
chemicals.  Help us continue that trend this year with another successful 
         For more information, call MSU Extension, Genesee County at (810) 
244-8524 or Genesee County Health Department at (810) 257-3603 or get the

Please post this information and flyer on bulletin boards in your 
community.  Please copy and distribute this information and place it into 
community newsletters.
