Last Chance to Register for GLOW Household Hazardous Waste/Pharmaceutical Collection
(Batavia, NY) – Don’t miss out! Spots for the GLOW’s 2011 Household Hazardous/Pharmaceutical Waste Collection Event are going fast. Residents who want to dispose of materials at the Saturday September 17 collection in Mt. Morris must have an appointment in order to attend. GLOW accepts a wide range of household chemicals, oil base paint, home computers, propane tanks and canisters, vehicle batteries and other materials. Microwave ovens and for the second year pharmaceuticals (unwanted, outdated, unusable and over-the-counter medicines will be accepted. These materials are accepted FREE OF CHARGE. There is a nominal fee for tires. Through a cooperative effort with AAA residents whose vehicles have them will be given the option of having their mercury trunk and hood light switches replaced with a non-mercury switch at the same time. Funding is provided by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), GLOW’s county contributions and Covanta Energy.
This is a great opportunity for residents to dispose of household chemicals and medicines they no longer want or need. Past collections have resulted in the safe and legal disposal of thousands of tires, thousands of gallons of solvents, cleaning products and paint, not to mention vehicle batteries, propane tanks and computers. Whenever possible materials collected are recycled.
The collection is open to residents in Genesee, Livingston and Wyoming Counties. To make an appointment residents are asked to call the GLOW office at 344-2580 extension 5463 or 800/836-1154. Or email [email protected]
