Hazardous Waste Schedule for 2015 – City of Nashua NH

hazardHousehold Hazardous Wastes (HHW) come from everyday products used in the home, yard, or garden. By definition, they are corrosive, flammable, toxic, or reactive.  Oil-based paints, solvents, auto products, antifreeze, pesticides, mixed gas, and household cleaners are just a few examples.

 

The City of Nashua and surrounding communities work together to provide opportunities for residents to safely dispose of unwanted hazardous waste.  Residents of Nashua, as well as Amherst, Brookline, Hollis, Hudson, Litchfield, Merrimack, Milford, Mont Vernon, Pelham and Windham are eligible to participate in any of the events.

5 drop-off collections are scheduled for 2015 at the Nashua Public Works Garage at 9 Stadium Drive (formerly 6 Riverside Street) near the Police Department and the Conway Arena.  The cost is $10 per vehicle, for up to 10 gallons or 20 pounds.  Please carpool, if possible.

Reminder: Trash Disposal Rule

Hello Villages,

Over the last few weeks it has been noted that the closed lid container rule for trash disposal is not being followed.

With high winds and tall snowbanks it is very difficult to retrieve any trash that may be blown out of the container.

Please help keep our community clean by following the rules:

9. Trash Disposal

9.1 – Curbside Trash Collection Procedure:  Trash can be set at curbside no earlier than 6:00 PM on the might before the day of trash collection.  Empty containers must be removed from the curbside no later than 8:00 PM on the day the trash is collected.  All kitchen trash must be in containers with closed lids on those containers.  The unit owner is responsible for picking up trash or debris left by the trash collection company.  Failure to properly maintain trash containers will result in fines to the Unit Owner.  The Unit Number and Street must be marked on each trash container.  Unmarked containers will be removed by the Management Company or the contracted trash collector.

If your unit is rented, it is the unit owner’s responsibility to provide this information to the tenant.  You can forward the email sent by the Property Manager or direct them to www.kesslerfarms.com and Latest News block/Twitter feed.

If you have any questions, please contact the Property Manager at pmanager@kesslerfarms.com.
