The Nobleboro-Jefferson Transfer Station will accept household hazardous waste from its customers from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 29.
“I know disposing of hazardous waste has been an ongoing issue for our customers,” said Barry Howell, manager of the station. “We realize how important it is for you to properly dispose of your hazardous materials.”
The station has been seeking a grant to help defray the cost of disposal of household hazardous waste. It applied for two grants in 2018, but did not receive any funds.
At the household hazardous waste drop-off day Aug. 29, the station will charge a minimum fee of $25. The fee covers up to 5 gallons of material.
“If you have less than 5 gallons, you might try to team up with someone else to get the most for your money,” Howell said.
The station only accepts cash or checks as payment and will not take any leaky containers.
“This day is not intended for any commercial waste,” Howell said.
Customers must have a transfer station sticker or proof of residence in one of the five towns that use the station to drop off household hazardous waste.
The Nobleboro-Jefferson Transfer Station serves Bremen, Damariscotta, Jefferson, Newcastle, and Nobleboro.
