    day in Shaftsbury

    POWNAL — A free household hazardous waste collection day will take place from 9 a.m. to noon, Oct. 26, rain or shine, at the Shaftsbury solid waste facility on North Road in Shaftsbury.

    Residents from Shaftsbury, Stamford and Pownal are welcome to drop off any substance with labels that say caustic, toxic, corrosive, poison, flammable, danger, warning or caution.

    This includes, for example, oil-based stains and varnishes; lighter fluid; rubber cement; furniture, floor or metal polish; weed killer; motor oil; and drain or toiler cleaner.

    However, there are some items that can’t be accepted, like radioactive waste, smoke detectors, propane cylinders, fire extinguishers, ammunition and batteries.

    Dried latex paint mixed with kitty litter and used motor oil is collected at the Pownal Transfer Station during normal operating hours.

    For more information, residents of Shaftsbury should call 442-4043; residents of Pownal should call 379-1470 or 442-9325; and residents of Stamford should call 694-1361.

    The collection is operated by Clean Harbors Environmental Services.
