Household Hazardous Waste Collection Dates Set
By Fire Chief Robert Crowe
April 22, 2021

The St. Lawrence County Solid Waste Department in conjunction with the Development Authority of the North Country, has set the dates for household hazardous waste collection events in the county. Household hazardous wastes are accepted free of charge as both agencies seek to keep these types of wastes out of the regular trash stream. A link to the flyer that shows what will and will not be accepted is posted below. Two such events will be held in St. Lawrence County, May 15th and September 18th. Both events will be held at the Human Services Building at 80 State Hightway 310 in Canton from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.

The Canton Fire Department strongly urges residents to take advantage of these opportunites to get household hazardous wastes out of their homes and garages. These items can be a significant health and fire hazard to those who come in contact with them.
