Household Hazardous Waste Collection Events
NWSWD holds household hazardous waste collection events May-September in various district towns on a rotating basis. Events are open to all residents (no businesses, please) of Grand Isle and Franklin Counties, except for Fairfax. Any resident of our 19 District towns can attend any of the events. If you can’t make it to one of the events, you can always schedule an appointment to drop off your hazardous waste at the Georgia Recycling Facility year-round!
