ConcordHazardous waste collection day

Concord General Services will host its annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day for residents on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Douglas N. Everett Arena, 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, polishes, 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. Concord residents can bring up to 10 gallons or 20 pounds of household hazardous waste at Concord’s Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day 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.
