Springtime brings out the best in all of us ... best time to clean out the attic, the basement and the garage, best time to clean out home and office ... best time to spring ahead with our organizational goals and achievements!
Spring is the best time to take inventory of what we need to keep and what we need to discard in our homes, garages, sheds and offices. Remember, when trashing old products, one must be careful that the hazardous materials do not end up in the weekly trash!
Fortunately, here on Cape Cod, the outstanding Cape Cod Cooperative Extension has created the 2016 Hazardous Waste Collections (by Zone) map and the 2016 Cape Cod Household Hazardous Products Collections schedule list by Town, Location, Time and Date.
Go to http://www.capecodextension.org and take a good look at the map and schedule to determine when and where you are able to safely dispose of your household hazardous waste in your community. Remember to set a good example for others and help keep planet Earth green!
