Hazardous Waste Day

2022 Household Hazardous Waste Day

Every fall the district hosts a hazardous waste collection day for all Weston County residents to bring their hazardous waste for proper recycling or disposal. The district does not charge residents for this service, but it is requested that a monetary donation or a donation of food be provided. Monetary donations help defray the cost of waste disposal, while food donations are passed on to the Bread Office.

When: the event is typically held on a Saturday in late September. Check back for more details

Location: Newcastle Elementary School parking lot

Time: 10 am to 1 pm


While we don’t charge for this service, we do ask that anyone bringing items for disposal please also bring food to donate to the Bread Office, our local food bank distribution in Weston County.

Items the Bread Office is in need of include:

  • Baking items: flour, sugar, powdered milk, baking soda, etc.
  • Box cake mixes: think birthday party items! Frosting, candles, the works!
  • Canned drinks, cereal and snack items
  • Diapers and wipes! Personal hygiene items and toiletries

These are items we often don’t thinking about but are needed!
