Household Hazardous Waste Day

Saturday, August 15th | 9 am-1 pm

Mason County Road Commission Building Scottville, Michigan

On the 3rd Saturday in August, AFFEW partners with the Mason-Lake Conservation District to collect hazardous waste. We provide financial support and volunteers for this important annual event. Participation for Mason County residents is free, $10 donation is recommended. Visit the Mason-Lake Conservation District’s website for a list of accepted items.

The 3-County Committee annually requests funds from counties and townships; but with the increase in collection expenses, we are looking for additional funding support for our 2019 collection. Any donation will be a great help in keeping the collection open and available to residents this year. Every $50 pays for disposal of 56 pounds of hazardous material. Safe disposal of these products also helps to ensure that our community and environment stay healthy.

Use the Recycle It map to find businesses in the Mason County area that will take items throughout the year.
