Household hazardous waste collection site to open Saturday

MARYVILLE, Mo. — The Nodaway County Household Hazardous Waste collection site will be open from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, July 6 at the Nodaway County Maintenance Barn, 1516 E. Halsey St in Maryville.

The site serves the residents of the five counties of the Solid Waste Management District, Atchison, Gentry, Holt, Nodaway and Worth.

Residents from those counties are welcome to participate, though identification will be required. There is no fee to drop off for residents.

No commercial or business waste will be accepted. Examples of HHW include: household chemicals (bleach, ammonia and cleaners), fertilizers, pesticides, brake fluid, transmission fluid, household waxes, Ni-cad, lithium and lead acid batteries, compact fluorescent light bulbs, florescent tubes, antifreeze, oil base paint and varnish.

The Northwest Missouri Regional Council of Governments Office says not to mix household hazardous wastes together and to keep in them in original containers. No latex paint will be accepted as it can be dried out and put in the trash.
