If you can't attend the Spring 2014 collection event, our full service drop off facility at Eastern Landfill is open Monday through Saturday. There will also be a Fall 2014 Collection Event. EPS has more information about household hazardous wastes (HHW) and the importance of ensuring their proper disposal.
