HHW 2018The annual Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection for the Newfound Region is scheduled for Saturday, August 4th from 8:30 am to 12:00 Noon at the NH D.O.T. garage on Ayers Island Road (in back of the Wells baseball field).

HHW are substances that poison or contaminate the environment, waterways and lakes, and threaten the health of those in the local community. If these products are poured down the sink or storm drains they can pollute our drinking water, threaten wildlife and ecosystems. When HHW is disposed of in the regular trash or is improperly stored it can react and produce toxic fumes. These are just a few reasons why you should bring in your HHW on August 4th.

Please note this collection is for residential households only.

For alternate collection locations and what types of items are accepted, please view the Household Hazardous Waste Collections brochure or visit the Lakes Region Planning Commission’s website
