Jo Co HazMat Collection Day Saturday

Jo Co HazMat Collection Day Saturday

Clean out your homes and ranches of unwanted pesticides, paint and other such waste at the annual Hazardous Material Collection Day this Saturday at the Johnson County Fairgrounds.

Nikki Lohse, with the Lake DeSmet Consevation District, tells us what will be collected this weekend.

Lohse said since the very first collection day eight or nine years ago, they have had to expand from one semi-trailer full of waste to what they are expecting to collect this year, which is three semi-trailers full.

There is no cost to city of Buffalo and Johnson County residents to drop off their waste, and Lohse explains how the collection is funded.

The collection will be Saturday at the Johnson County Fairgrounds, beginning at 9 am and wrapping up at 3pm. Be prepared for the lines when you arrive, but they do move fairly quickly.
