June 4 - Household Hazardous Waste & Electronics Collection for Nashua area residents from 3 - 7 pm at the Nashua Public Works Garage.
My personal soap box: Some items considered hazardous waste include: bathroom cleaner, disinfectants, drain cleaners, rug cleaner, oven cleaner and bleach. If these things can only be disposed of once a year and are considered a hazard, why expose your family to them at all? I am an Independent Distributor for Shaklee, a cleaner, greener, safer, smarter cleaning solution that really works and is easy to use!
