Registration Now Open for Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event Lockport
Niagara County Legislator Will Collins today announced that registration is now open for the county’s next household hazardous waste (HHW) collection event, which will be held on Saturday, September 23 in Lockport. The event is open to all Niagara County residents but you must register in advance.
Collins said the event will be held from 9 a.m. to noon at the Lockport Town Hall located at 6560 Dysinger RToad. Registration can be done by going to www.rethinkyourwaste.com/events and scrolling down to the Lockport event. There is also a list of items that will be accepted for recycling posted to that website, including latex paint which is a recent addition.
“As summer winds down, this is a great opportunity to recycle leftover paints, pesticides, pool chemicals and other items left in your garage or basement before packing everything up for winter,” said Collins.
Dawn Timm, Niagara County Environmental Coordinator, said in the ten-plus years the HHW program has been operating, close to one million pounds of harmful products have been removed from Niagara County homes.
“People have really embraced the events we run throughout the spring, summer and fall as our attendance has never been higher,” said Timm. “We have one event after this in North Tonawanda and are already planning our calendar for 2024.”
