A Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day will be held at Lebanon High School on Saturday, October 3, 2020 from 9:00AM – NOON. This event is held at Lebanon High School to better accommodate the large turnout. The following flyer provides complete details regarding which items can and cannot be dropped off.
Please be aware of the following changes relating to safety during the COVID-19 pandemic.
All attendees at the Hazardous Waste Collection event must:
- stay in their vehicles;
- put up their masks when near people and a vehicle window is down;
- place their waste in the trunk or truck bed - not hand it out the window or have it in their back seat;
- not bring containers they want back (such as fuel can);
- no money will be taken from anyone from a non-participating municipality; you must call in advance to make arrangements to send a check.
There will only be one person from our staff and no volunteers. That person will be wearing a mask and only asking what town the attendee is from. No literature will be handed out. Someone from the service company will probably look at the waste in the trunk or truck bed before the vehicle can proceed (this is how they do it every year).
Chemists and those pouring off the hazardous waste will NOT wear masks as they are would be at greater risk if their masks became contaminated by the chemicals. Workers will be asked questions about their health and their temperature will be taken to ensure no one is working at the site that might be ill.
No Unwanted/Unused Medications
Unwanted and unused medications (prescription and over-the-counter) WILL NOT be collected during the event. Please view information about the Pharmaceutical Drop Box & Sharps Disposal Container available 24-hours-a-day in the Lebanon Police Department lobby.
