White Cloud, MI - The Newaygo County Board of Public Works is providing a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day on Saturday, June 4 at the Newaygo County Road Commission in White Cloud. The collection day will begin at
8:00 a.m. and end at 2:00 p.m.
According to the Department of Environmental Quality, “Household hazardous waste (HHW) are products we purchase every day that contain materials that could harm us or the environment if improperly handled.
Common products that could be HHW are pesticides, cleaners, paints, stains, personal care, and electronic products. Look for words such as 'warning,' 'caution,' 'flammable,' 'toxic,' 'poison,' etc. on the labels.
Many of these products are not used up and are stored in homes, basements and garages across Michigan.
By making sure products are used up and used properly or taken to a local HHW collection, you can protect your family and the environment.”
Hazardous items will be accepted at no charge for Newaygo County residents on Collection Day, but all donations will be greatly appreciated. Tires less than four foot tall and less than 12 inches wide will also be accepted.
The location of the Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day is 935 E. One Mile (M-20 just west of M-37) in White Cloud.
Please call Newaygo County Board of Public Works at 231.689.7225 with any questions.
