Where we live: Erie County

Erie County

The Erie County Department of Environment & Planning, in cooperation with Erie Community College and Northeast Southtowns Solid Waste Management, reminds residents that a “Household Hazardous Waste Drop-off Day” will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

In May, a similar event at ECC North collected 15,552 gallons of paint, among other household wastes.

“These collection events are a free and proper way for residents to get rid of household wastes in a manner that is safe to them and to the environment,” said County Executive Mark C. Poloncarz in a statement. “Thanks to the efforts of the Department of Environment & Planning and their partners, we are creating a cleaner and greener Erie County.”
