Now is the time to clean out your garage and home and bring your unwanted Household Hazardous Waste chemicals to the FREE HHW collection event. Coos and Curry County residents can dispose of various household chemicals at a FREE “Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event” scheduled for July 27, 2019 (9:00 A.M. – 1:00 P.M.) at the Beaver Hill Transfer Site (1/4 mile south of Milepost 253) on Highway 101 between Coos Bay and Bandon. Please call 541-396-7624 to make an appointment to drop off your household hazardous waste at this event, as soon as possible. Appointments should be made prior to the day of the event. Best time to call is Tuesday – Friday from 9am – 1 pm. We are asking you to make an appointment so we do not have long traffic lines and we are able to avoid congestion on Highway 101. It also helps us to plan for how much material we will expect from you that needs to be shipped out and the number of staff we need to cover the event. The collection event allows Coos and Curry County residents to safely dispose of a wide range of materials such as poisons, pesticides, solvents, fluorescent lights, pool chemicals, aerosol cans, caustic cleaners, mercury thermometers and flammable liquids. This event is for household hazardous waste only. No industrial or commercial wastes will be accepted. If you are a business we can provide a phone number and contact name to make an appointment for collection of these wastes.
