The cost per vehicle will be $20 and registration is required in advance. The program is limited to 300 resident vehicles. Attendees must be residents of Pike County, PA. Business/commercial hazardous waste will not be accepted, households only.
Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) is any product found in a household that are considered toxic, flammable, etc. and require careful handling and disposal. Examples of these hazardous products include items such as pool chemicals, motor oils, and pesticides. Latex (water-based) paint is not considered HHW if it is in solid form. Water-based paint can be disposed of in your regular household garbage if you solidify first using commercially available paint hardeners, cat litter, or air drying in a safe, well-ventilated area. Properly disposing of these materials can be difficult but it is an important way to protect the high-quality natural resources we have here in Pike County.
To register for this event, inventory the amounts of HHW to be disposed of and go to the event page here: https://PikeCountyHHW.eventbrite.com.
