The next event currently scheduled will take place at Crosby High School in Waterbury on July 18, 2020.
Please future updates this program, please visit NVCOG’s HHW webpage: http://nvcogct.org/content/household-hazardous-waste as well look for positings on social media channels and local, municipal websites. Information on how to properly dispose of common household items is also featured on the NVCOG HHW webpage.
Household hazardous wastes are any wastes produced in the home that are poisonous, flammable, reactive, or corrosive. These wastes are harmful to human health and the environment if not disposed of properly. The goal of the program is to keep potentially hazardous waste out of local landfills and sewers, providing extra protection for wetlands and waterways. In addition, residents may now bring latex (water-based) paint to the collection event. While not considered hazardous waste, the latex paint is also accepted as part of the statewide paint product stewardship program.
