County sets household waste limitations

Until Nevada County’s new Household Hazardous Waste Facility opens, residents may bring the following items to the McCourtney Road Transfer Station:

• Used oil and oil filters

• Empty oil and antifreeze containers

• Lead acid batteries

• Oil and latex paints

• Paint-related solvents

• Computer monitors

• Televisions

• Tires without rims

The transfer station cannot accept herbicides, pesticides and other similar household hazardous wastes. “Residents are being asked to store chemicals in airtight containers in cool places until the new permanent facility is constructed and operational,” said Nevada Country recycling technician Nichole Dorr.
