Cleanup: hazardous household waste date is 7 October 2017
Grant announced and dates set for household hazardous waste and electronic waste collection -- items such as solvents, pesticides, batteries, fluorescent bulbs, cleaners, and electronic waste will be accepted during October on two different occasions.
From the Office of Adair CJ/E Michael Stephens
Free disposal of household hazardous waste for Adair County residents will be held Saturday, October 7, 2017, from 8am-12noonCT at the county road department located at 62 Service Drive in Columbia. This will be the first of two days in the month giving the opportunity for citizens to bring items and have help unloading things that are not picked up in regular trash rounds.
Through the efforts of the county's Solid Waste Coordinators, Andrea Waggener and Bridget Compton and Recycling Supervisor David Smith, Adair County was awarded a PRIDE grant to fund the collection of household hazardous waste. With over 25 years experience in planning, collection and disposal, Environmental Enterprises, Inc. will conduct Adair County's collection event.
During the event, there will be assistance available to unload materials and participants will be asked to fill out a brief survey. Please be sure to have a driver's license or other form of identification which includes county of residence, address.
It is the hope of the Fiscal Court that citizens will take advantage of this opportunity to dispose of hazardous waste collected from their homes that otherwise may have been managed improperly. Items such as solvents, pesticides, batteries, fluorescent bulbs, cleaners, and other hazardous household items will be accepted. Only certain items will be collected and some restrictions apply. Please review the complete list of "household hazardous waste items" for more details.
Adair County residents having paint cans that need to be disposed of prior to the event may come to the Judge Executive's office, 424 Public Square, Suite 1 after Oct. 1 to pick up packages of paint hardening crystals. Once the paint is hardened the cans can be disposed of with the rest of the usual household waste for curbside collection. This hardener is available to residents with a limit of crystals to dry five paint gallons until the supply runs out. Businesses are excluded.
E-Waste (old electronic devices) collection details will be given in a separate story -- dates for this will be the week of October 16-21, 2017 at the Adair County Recycling Center.
For more details on the collection dates and how to plan, call 270-384-4703.
