Public Works, Waste Management hail Household Hazardous Waste Day a success

On Saturday, May 20th, the Department of Public Works collaborated with Waste Management to provide a successful Household Hazardous Waste Day for the community.

New Hampshire residents purchase millions of dollars worth of household products such as cleaners, pesticides, and electronic devices that make lives easier, safer, and more enjoyable. Unfortunately, consumers are not always aware of the toxic nature of these products nor do they fully consider the possible environmental or health effects resulting from their use and disposal.

By safely storing hazardous wastes, and bringing them to Household Hazardous Waste Day, consumers are making sure their wastes are transported and disposed of by licensed facilities in a manner that prevents environmental pollution.

According to city officials, approximately 422 residents from Rochester, Somersworth, Barrington, Strafford, Farmington, Northwood, Milton, Middleton, New Durham, and Wakefield were able to safely dispose of household hazardous waste. The event was efficient, will little to no wait times.
