your basement is anything like ours then you've got 15 half-filled
banged-up cans of oil-based wood paint.
If your garage
is typical, then you've got a bucket filled with what might be
brake fluid but could just as easily be a pesticide used to nix
If that pool
house doesn't have a 52 inch flat screen TV, it surely
has a half-empty jug of anti-algae chemicals.
calls this stuff Nev-R-Chipz and Gnat Not and Aqua-Kleer
-- we simply call it hazardous.
to get rid of this stuff, but if you threw it in the trash you'd
be too ashamed to show your face around town, right? Well,
we can't have THAT in Chatham, now can we?
about these 'Hazardous Products Collection Days' but it seems
like we have to guess at when they'll occur. In fact, Cape
Cod takes hazardous waste so seriously that Chatham, Harwich
and Brewster residents are being given SIX days throughout 2007
in which they can bring the following items to the Harwich Transfer
Station so they can be disposed of safely:
Pesticides, Fertilizer with Pesticides
· Gasoline, Brake and Power Steering Fluids
· Photo and Pool Chemicals, Chemistry Sets
· Wood Finishes and Preservatives, Acids
· Oil, Alkyd, Lead, Marine and Auto Paints
· Solvents, Thinners, Strippers and Finishes
bring these bad boys to the Harwich Transfer Station on six Saturdays
from 9am to noon -- May 12, June 9, July 14, Aug 11, Sept 8,
Mark the dates,
gather up your hazardous items and for more details go to ChathamRecycles.org
and click on EVENT CALENDAR.
KNOW? The Chatham Transfer Station has FREE COMPOST! BYOB!
(Bring Your Own Bin, Box, Bucket, Buick) and take all you need!
