WYTHE COUNTY, Va. – The Joint Public Service Authority of Wythe and Bland Counties will be hosting its annual Household Hazardous Waste Disposal Day on Saturday, September 25, 2021.

The free event is open to all Wythe and Bland residents and will be held between 8 am and noon at the transfer station located at 169 Kents Lane in Wytheville, Va. 

Acceptable items include all kitchen cleaners, bathroom cleaners, gardening supplies, pool chemicals, poisons, all automotive fluids, floor care products, glues, wood preservatives, varnishes, paints, solvents, stains, creosote products, mercury products, rust removers, drain openers, coal tar products, pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, driveway sealers, mothballs, inks, dyes and paint thinners.

Though the event is free to the public, the county is charged based upon the volume of hazardous material collected.  In an effort to be good stewards for the taxpayers, county officials are urging residents not to bring dried paint or buckets of empty paint to the hazardous waste disposal event – once dried, paint is no longer considered hazardous waste and may be taken to the regular trash collection centers located throughout the county, free of charge.

With residents preparing to winterize their properties, local officials are expecting increased participation in the upcoming event; however, appointments and scheduling is not necessary – the event is scheduled rain or shine.

Prohibited items will include all waste from small businesses (commercial or industrial entities, including home-based businesses), as well as explosive, radiological, asbestos or biomedical waste. Items including dynamite, nitro glycerin, blasting caps, ammunition, grenades, and fireworks are also prohibited.

Residents who have questions concerning the event are encouraged to contact the Joint Public Service Authority at 276-228-4907. As part of an initiative to keep Southwest Virginia clean, the hazardous waste collection day will provide local residents with an opportunity to dispose of unwanted items that typically are not accepted at local convenience centers. There is no cost to the resident for this event.
