You can now get rid of the dead batteries you’ve been storing if you live in the Town of Bancroft
The first Hazardous Waste Day of the year will take place Saturday, June 4th at the Dungannon Waste Disposal Site on Pinnacle Road from 9 AM until 2 PM.
Public Works says that this is an event for Bancroft residents only. You 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.
Public Works Manager Perry 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.
Unknown waste, PCB-contaminated waste, explosives, radioactive, pathological, and industrial/commercial/institutional waste will not be accepted.
