Hazardous Waste Collection Mulled

ELLSWORTH — Savory Bay Environmental Planning and Project Management is in the process of gauging interest for a 2009 household hazardous waste collection, tentatively scheduled for Aug. 22 at Ellsworth High School.

Accepted materials will likely include (but not be limited to) household cleaners, mercury-containing items, rechargeable batteries, various chemical and organic materials. Similar to previous years, the overall cost will depend on the overall number of participating municipalities.

Interested cities, towns and volunteers are encouraged to send a nonbinding notification by Friday, May 8. Shortly thereafter, more information will be provided.
