MRRMA residents can bring pesticides, architectural oil and latex paint and primary batteries to this event at no charge and can also bring an additional ten gallons of liquid or ten pounds of solids at no additional charge.

Small businesses must preregister by October 11, 2023 indicating what will be brought so organizers can determine costs for this waste disposal. Preregister by emailing
