Cass County Recycling District’s HHW Day set for Sept. 22, 2018

The Cass County Recycling District’s annual HHW Day (Household Hazardous Waste) is quickly approaching which means now is the perfect time to have a fall, whole house clean up.

Most hazardous waste substances contain ingredients that injure pets, our families, and the environment if handled or disposed of improperly. Help the community reduce the impact of contamination of our soil and drinking water. If you have any type of chemical that you want to dispose of properly and recycle, bring it to our HHW Day.

The event will be held on Saturday, September 22nd at Logansport High School from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. The service is FREE for Cass County residents. Donations are appreciated. Items accepted are, but not limited to:

Oil based paints/stains, flammable liquids (gas/paint thinner), insecticides, pesticides, corrosives, flammable solids, putty, adhesives, household cleaners, oxidizing solids (pool chemicals), fire extinguishers, driveway sealer, acids and bases, household cleaners, oil, oil filters, automotive fluids, fluorescent and mercury-containing bulbs, antifreeze, prescription and over-the-counter medicines (non-controlled), sharps (contain and label needles and lancets) aerosols, small propane tanks, non-hazardous material (soaps, lotions, makeup).

Items not accepted are:

Asbestos, lab chemicals, explosives, ammunitions, infectious waste, radioactive material, large propane tanks, and latex paint. Latex based paint can be dried out and put in your regular trash as it is non-toxic.
