Time to toss those toxics; hazardous waste round-up nears
San Juan County’s Hazardous Waste Round-up gives residents a no-cost opportunity to dispose of up to 25 gallons of surplus or waste materials that are poisonous, flammable or otherwise unsafe or illegal to dispose of normally.
The 2014 schedule: Orcas Island, April 12, San Juan Island, April 26, Lopez Island, June 21.
Businesses must register by sending in a list of the materials two weeks before the collection date. Call 370-0534 for a copy of business registration materials.
Orcas and Lopez businesses should come on the same Saturday as residents, but may come an hour early. San Juan Island businesses should come Friday, April 25, 1-3 p.m.
Materials accepted include: pesticides and other poisons; gasoline and other waste fuels; wood preservatives, oil-based paints and stains; resins, solvents and thinners; pool and photo chemicals; polishes, degreasers, cleaning products and mothballs; fluorescent light tubes and compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs- used as light bulbs).
