NHC residents, mark your calendars on March 30th for Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Collection Day!  Be responsible when cleaning out your garages and houses by disposing of your Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) properly.   

By ridding of HHW the correct way you can help keep our lives healthy and natural resources safe.  If HHW is improperly disposed of it can pollute our streams, rivers, drinking water and groundwater, as well as interfere with treatment processes at the landfills and wastewater treatment plants.
