The Whatcom County Disposal of Toxics program
will hold a household hazardous waste collection day at the local transfer
station this weekend, giving community members an opportunity to get rid of
potentially dangerous substances in a safe way. The event will be held on
Saturday, September 24 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the transfer station at 2005
Johnson Road. Jeff Hegedus, environmental health supervisor for Whatcom County,
said the event is later than usual this year due to a delay in processing
paperwork for the products to be taken through Canada.
