The S.T.O.P. (Stop Throwing Out Pollutants) Program is designed to provide area residents with a safe, environmentally sound method of disposal of the many hazardous materials found in the average home. The program takes place once a month from March through December, and is held in a different village every month.

Please call or visit the website for the most current schedule and general program information.

When transporting HHW:
Wrap leaking containers in newspaper and place in a plastic bag or larger container. Make sure all caps and lids are tight. Place items securely in a box for transportation. Use newspaper or cardboard to keep items from tipping or hitting each other. Place chemicals which may react with each other in separate areas of the vehicle. Do not leave products in a hot, unventilated vehicle for an extended period of time. Do not smoke near chemical products. Wear rubber gloves when handling containers.
