Washington County will have a satellite weekend household hazardous waste collection 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 12, at the Hugo Public Works Garage located at 6900 137th St. N., Hugo.
Satellite collections bring the services offered at the Washington County Environmental Center closer to residents, making it more convenient and practical for them to recycle and dispose their household hazardous waste and electronics.
Confidential document shredding will also be available.
In addition to the satellite collection evens, there will be confidential paper shredding at the Washington County Environmental Center, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 6. In addition to remote-site collections, the Washington County Environmental Center, 4039 Cottage Grove Dr in Woodbury, provides residents with a free and convenient disposal option for household hazardous waste, electronics, and recyclables year-round, and is open Tuesdays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Fridays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The center accepts household hazardous waste, electronics, and recyclables. The center also has a free product room in which residents may browse the shelves and take home previously-owned products such as paint, stain, automotive supplies, household cleaners, and other products. All items taken to the Environmental Center are inspected to determine if they are usable products.
