Household Hazardous Waste

Have you heard of PaintCare? 

Have you heard of PaintCare? They can take certain paint products year-round at local store drop-off points.

Pharmaceuticals can be dropped off at many other locations throughout the North Country. 


Household hazardous wastes are products that can be found in your home that can catch fire, react or explode under certain circumstances, be corrosive, be toxic, and may be dangerous to human health. It is vital that you limit the usage of these products, as well as dispose of them the correct way (not in the landfill) as an environmentally sustainable practice. To ensure the North Country disposes of its waste properly, the Development Authority of the North Country and the three counties collaborate on Household Hazardous Waste & Pharmaceutical Waste Collection Days.  They are open to all residential households.  Businesses, schools, farms, municipalities, or conditionally exempt small quantity generators (CESQGs) are excluded.
