Ready to get rid of those old paint cans? Got some antifreeze that needs to be gone?
How about batteries? Light bulbs? Pesticides?
Well, the waiting is over. After a year’s sabbatical due to COVID concerns the annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day is back.
Bring your unwanteds to the Newaygo County Road Commission garage on Saturday May 15th from 8am-2pm and they will e out of your life (and garage) for good.
But hey, don’t bring tires. There will be a separate date set for those steel belted discards
Drain Commissioner, Board of Public Works Chair Dale Twing:
“This program has had a huge positive impact on our local environment. We weren’t able to have it last year due to COVID-19 but it has gotten bigger and more popular every year.
“The county is the primary funding source for this program contributing over $40,000 to put on the event. We also have several partners who help out including Marv Deur of The Shack who has continued to assist us each year.”
“In 2019 the last time it was held over 500 carloads from nearly every city and township in the county dropped off their unwanted materials.”
And while it doesn’t cost a thing to do the dump on your hazardous waste stuff...
Donations to the cause are cheerfully accepted.
