You can find a safe and easy way to dispose of unwanted hazardous household waste products next month. The Door County Highway Department will be offering a drop off in Sister Bay and Sturgeon Bay on November 6th and 7th, respectively. All Door County residents are invited to get rid of any household hazardous wastes that can cause harm to people and the environment if not disposed of properly. Door County Highway Commissioner John Kolodziej gives some examples of household chemicals that can be brought for disposal.
Kolodziej notes that fluids found around the garage like old gasoline or oil mixtures, antifreeze, and oil-based paints. No medical or commercial waste will be accepted. Due to COVID-19 safety guidelines, all items will be taken out of trunks or hatchbacks as you must remain in their vehicles when dropping off the containers of waste. The household hazardous waste collection event will be from 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm on Friday, November 6 at the Sister Bay/ Liberty Grove Fire Department on Mill Road in Sister Bay. The Saturday, November 7 event will be held at the Door County Highway Department on South Duluth Avenue in Sturgeon Bay from 8 am – 10:00 am.
