More than 400 residents took advantage of the Household Hazardous Waste Collection held May 13, 2017 at the Public Works facility.

Public Works staff assisted with the collection, which allows residents to dispose of old paints, chemicals, petroleum products and electronic waste at no charge.

Members of the Recycling Committee were also there, providing information on food-waste composting and handing out surveys to gauge awareness of the collection.

The town contracted with two licensed consolidators to package and properly dispose of items, many of which are recycled. Household Hazardous Waste collection is held annually for Cape residents on the second Saturday of May.
