County to host final household hazardous waste collection for 2012
The Crow Wing County Land Services Department’s Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Program will host its final organized collection events for the 2012 season from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct. 10 and Oct. 13 at the county landfill off Highway 210 east of Brainerd.
This will be the last opportunity of the year to dispose of unwanted chemicals, cleaning products, pesticides, herbicides, paints, stains and automotive chemicals.
Upon arriving at the county landfill site residents must stop at the landfill office. The attendant will discuss the items to be disposed and provide directions to where the HHW facility is located at the site. It is important to note that all loads coming to the county landfill must be covered to ensure roadways are not littered with debris.
During the winter months, from November through April, household hazardous waste will only be taken for emergency situations, the county reported. Emergency situations include residents who are moving or an estate that must dispose of hazardous materials, and cannot wait until HHW programs reopen in May of 2013.
To schedule an appointment, contact the Land Services Department located at the Crow Wing County Landfill at 824-1290.
