Pocatello–Starting next week, area residents can once again dispose of household hazardous waste for free at the Fort Hall Mine Landfill just south of Pocatello. Bannock County Public Works has created a Facebook event to raise awareness of the monthly disposal date. The event notes read:
Dispose of your Household Hazardous Waste for FREE at the Fort Hall Mine Landfill on the first Saturday of the month from April to October.
Are there old, dangerous chemicals lurking in your garage or cabinets? Now is the time to clean them out!
The Fort Hall Mine Landfill will collect Household Hazardous Waste for FREE on the first Saturday of the month from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Bannock County residents can bring their waste to the landfill’s household hazardous waste building for drop-off, or they will be directed by employees who remove the waste from the vehicles.
Make the right choice and dispose of your hazardous waste properly, and help us keep our aquifer and environment safe and clean.
