WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. (WIVB) - Erie County will hold a hazardous waste drop off event on Saturday, giving residents a safe and easy way to get rid of old paint, batteries, propane tanks and more.
The drop-off will be held at ECC's North Campus in Williamsville from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. Other items being accepted are old pesticides, oil and household chemicals.
Erie County Department of Environment and Planning Commissioner Maria Whyte said, "If you don't dispose of them properly, another risk that we want to educate the community about is the potential physical injury to sanitation workers, contamination in our septic tank systems, and our waste water treatment facilities if they are poured down the drains and the toilets."
Anyone who would like to drop off items should enter the ECC North Campus at the Wehrle Drive entrance. You can find an entire list of items being accepted here.
