Household hazardous waste collection to be held

The Colusa County 2020 Household Hazardous and Universal Waste Collection will take place on Saturday, June 27 from the hours of 9 AM to 2 PM in Williams, 5714 E. Street at the Colusa County Road Department.

“We had been seeing a steady decline in volume of material in the last few collection events,” said Public Works Director Michael Azevedo.

The last event was in 2015, so he expects the volume of Saturday’s collection event to be up a bit.

For those that wish to clean out the garage, the collection will be particularly advantageous. The event is for materials not accepted at the dumps. This will help to keep toxic waste out of the irrigation canals that run throughout the county.

Allowed items are: gasoline, thinners, contaminated oil, art supplies, wood preservatives, photo chemicals, solvents, polishes, glue and adhesives, oil-based paints, entire and brake part cleaners, latex paints, waxes, ammonia and bleach-based cleaners, oven cleaners, shoe polishes, fluorescent tubes and bulbs, aerosol sprays, alkaline and rechargeable batteries, nail polish removers, pool chemicals, pesticides, fungicides, weed killers, small compressed gas cylinders.

Items that are not allowed are: ammunition and explosives, asbestos, biological waste, medical waste, radioactive waste, waste containing PCB, large compressed gas cylinders, tires, and non-hazardous waste.

The items must be packed in individual containers with fitted lids that do not leak, such as a sturdy box or tub. The containers must be labeled and packed with newspaper or other absorbent material.

For safety reasons, officials at the Colusa County Department of Public Works request that the materials not be mixed together, such as bleach with ammonia. Containers with the waste should be kept in the trunk or rear of the vehicle when transported.

The event is free for households due to the CalRecycle grant funding. Although there is a limit of 15 flowing gallons of toxic items or 125 pounds per trip, there is not a limit on the number of trips allowed.

“Being free always encourages participation,” said Azevedo. “That helps getting material disposed of properly or reused.”
