We are just a week away from Autumn and that means it is a great time to clean out the cabinets and garage. On Thursday, Republic Services helped Mountain Home residents with their fall clean-up by hosting the annual Household Hazardous Waste Drop Off Day. Everything from batteries to electronics, propane to pesticides, was safely collected for proper disposal by Republic Services technicians and volunteers. Twenty-six Republic Services’ team members helped more than 200 individuals/families drop off more than 10 tons (or 20,000 pounds) of household hazardous waste.
The Household Hazardous Waste Drop Off Day has been a community staple in Mountain Home since 1994. Annually, Republic Services contributes upwards of $75,000 for this event in its donation of labor, supplies, and disposal. All hazardous items will be properly identified and separated to then be transported, treated, and recycled appropriately.
