Essex County approves hazardous waste disposal day funding

— “We do not have the funds to put it in every community in the county,” Jay supervisor and board chairman Randy Douglas said. “North Hudson seems like a good compromise there.”

LaVigne said that he had a pair of dates in mind for the disposal days, which were Aug. 10 and Aug. 17.

“We are trying to do both sites the same day, and we are shooting for Aug. 10,” LaVigne said. “It will be based on staff, so we may also have to have one of the sites on Aug. 10 and the other on Aug. 17.”

LaVigne said that, with the county sponsorship, there would not be a fee for residents and that they would be sending out brochures with items that would be accepted before the disposal days took place.

“We are not going to take automobile batteries this year because those can go back to an auto part dealer,” LaVigne said. “There are also some new exceptions on medical waste so we are not going to take medical waste this year.”
