Dispose of your hazardous waste
Concord General Services is hosting its annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day for Concord residents on Saturday, Sept. 15, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Douglas N. Everett Arena, located at 15 Loudon Road.
Concord residents should bring their household hazardous waste to the event to safely dispose of harmful materials. Household hazardous wastes are leftover household products that are toxic, ignitable, corrosive or reactive, such as cleaners, paint, pesticides, adhesives, polish and fuels. Hazardous materials should not be disposed of in the trash, down any drains, in storm sewers or on the ground. Improperly disposing of these materials can seriously impact public health and the environment. It is important to carefully dispose of dangerous materials to avoid any potential risks of hazardous wastes.
Concord residents can bring up to 10 gallons or 20 pounds of household hazardous waste for proper disposal. Acceptable items to bring include items such as oil-based paints (no latex paint), gasoline, transmission fluid, swimming pool chemicals, insecticides, fertilizers and furniture cleaner. Decisions to accept or refuse material will be made on-site. Please do not bring fluorescent bulbs, fire extinguishers, radioactive waste, industrial waste, ammunition, prescription medication, regular trash or latex paint. Latex paint is not hazardous and can be disposed of in the regular trash when completely dried out. A full list of acceptable and unacceptable materials can be found at concordnh.gov/hhw.
Proof of Concord residency is required. Residents should remain in their vehicle and attendants will safely remove materials for them. Items should remain in their original containers with tightened lids and be packed in sturdy upright boxes to avoid spills. Never mix chemicals or smoke while handling hazardous waste. Be sure to do your part to keep the Concord community safe and clean by attending this year’s Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day on Sept. 15.
