Several times throughout the year I receive calls asking, “What can I do with my old paint, cleaning products and lawn chemicals, etc.?” Coming up soon, is the opportunity to properly dispose of those products. On Saturday, April 25th from 7:30 to 10:30 a.m. at the Fillmore County Shop located at 615 F Street in Geneva there will be a Household Hazardous Waste Collection which is free of charge with financial support provided through a grant by the Trailblazer RC & D from the NE Dept of Environmental Quality Litter Reduction & Recycling Grant Program and other assistance provided by the Fillmore County Supervisors and Fillmore County Development Corporation.
Items accepted include: all paint, cleaning products, lawn & garden chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, used oil, antifreeze, batteries, florescent bulbs and mercury items (such as thermometers & thermostats) in household quantities only! Items NOT accepted include: tires, electronic equipment, appliances, PCBs, Picric Acid, science lab materials, radioactive materials, biological hazards, pharmaceuticals, items containing asbestos, wood preservatives, explosives or commercial quantities. For more information, contact the Fillmore County Development Corporation at (402) 7569-4910 or Larry Cerny at (402) 759-4369.
