Station available for disposal of household hazardous waste
Summer allows area residents time to paint their houses or improve their lawns and gardens, but the products they use for these projects need proper disposal.
Ed Sass, director of the Leavenworth County Noxious Weed Department, said household hazardous wastes can be dropped off at the Leavenworth County Transfer Station, 13523 E. Gilman in Lansing. A small form with name, address and quantity of waste must be filled out when disposing at the transfer station.
Some types of hazardous household waste are flammable, corrosive and poison. Examples of these are paint or gasoline (flammable), Drano (corrosive) and garden supplies (poison).
County residents can bring waste to the transfer station during business hours, from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
Sass said the service is strictly for residential disposal, not for small businesses or anything similar.
