A month after the first one, a second hazardous waste day will be held by the Town of Bancroft.
The new date take in your unwanted waste will happen Saturday, June 12th at the Dungannon Waste Disposal Site on Pinnacle Road from 9 AM until 2 PM.
Perry Kelly, Public Works Manager for the Town, says there will be a separate area as you enter the waste site. Staff members will assist visitors to the site and verify that they are taxpayers. They must show proof of ID or driver’s licence and municipal waste site cards, as it is against the Town’s certificate of approval to accept any other municipality’s waste.
Kelly says that anything you wouldn’t normally put in a landfill normally will be accepted at the site. On top of any and all batteries, the site will also accept things like aerosols, solvents, pesticides, car waste like oil or antifreeze, propane tanks, mercury devices, paint, acids, fluorescent tubes and pharmaceuticals.
Trash that is not allowed at the waste site would include PCB-contaminated waste, as well as radioactive, pathological, industrial or commercial waste. Explosives are forbidden as well.
Kelly says that if that kind of waste is brought, staff on-site can direct you to where you can drop it off. If you are unsure if your waste is acceptable, Kelly says to bring it anyway if Staff will be able to tell you if it is accepted or not.
The last hazardous waste day was on May 8th.
