Another hazardous waste day is being held this week in the Town of Bancroft.
The event is happening at the Dungannon Waste Site on Saturday, July 24th. The event will be happening 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 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.
