Hazardous waste is generated by countless sources and industries within Door County. The ramifications of incorrect disposal of hazardous waste cause harm to humans, animals, and plants. You will have the opportunity to dispose of items such as batteries, paint thinner, and rat poison, among other things, at a hazardous waste collection event in Door County. Door County Highway Department Head John Kolodziej encourages you to take advantage of the event, as it doesn’t happen every year.
The free collection event will be held on Friday in Sister Bay at the Fire Station from 3:30 to 5:30 PM. The second hazardous waste collection will occur on Saturday morning in Sturgeon Bay, at the Door County Highway Department from 8 to 10 AM.
