Recycling: Time to dispose of hazardous wastes.
We’re hearing a lot about water pollution these days.
Residents of Cape Cod have the ability to minimize the volume of pollutants that could end up in our drinking water supplies simply by participating in their local Household Hazardous Waste Collection day.
Barnstable County’s Cape Cod Cooperative Extension, with funding through various towns, offers monthly collection days for residents to drop off unwanted paint items, yard chemicals, cleaning chemicals and auto fluids.
Is there a chemical cleaner of some undetermined age that’s been there a while?
How about oven or drain cleaner that you decided you didn’t like the smell of?
They’re all held at the easy access Harwich Transfer Station on Queen Anne Road.
