The Chittenden Solid Waste District’s mobile collection unit for household hazardous waste – known as “the Rover” – visits Hinesburg this Saturday, Aug.11, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The Rover will set up at Hinesburg Community School.
The Rover provides free drop-off of household hazardous leftovers such as paints and stains, automotive fluids, batteries, hobby supplies, marine flares, pesticides, fertilizers, household cleaners, beauty supplies, and anything with the words “Danger,” “Caution,” “Warning,” or “Poison” on the label.
The Rover does not accept asbestos, explosives, or prescription drugs.
Residents of neighboring Chittenden County communities are welcome to drop off at the event as well. The Rover serves Chittenden County households only.
In addition to the Rover events, the district accepts household hazardous waste for free year-round at the CSWD Environmental Depot, 1011 Airport Parkway in South Burlington. The Depot is open Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., and on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
