The Wilton Conservation Commission is sponsoring the town’s annual household hazardous waste collection day on Saturday, Oct. 26, from 9 to 3, at the Miller-Driscoll School parking lot on Wolfpit Road. This event enables Wilton residents to safely dispose of unwanted household hazardous material. A certified hazardous waste contractor will provide appropriate and responsible disposal of the unwanted products.
Nearly all households contain some household hazardous waste, generally defined as material that is corrosive (such as acids and alkalis), flammable, reactive or toxic. Common items includes oil-based paints, thinners, pool chemicals, pesticides, mercury thermometers, and gasoline.
