Debbie Babiuk of the town’s public works staff removed the lids from paint containers so their contents could be dumped into larger barrels during the Hazardous Waste and Materials Round-Up Sept. 15 while other products were sorted in the back of a truck.

John Watson, public works manager, said they received a variety of items from 27 customers during the event. This was down from 48 people in 2011 and 86 in 2010.

He suggested while it was successful, the trend downwards might be an indication that people have more opportunities to get rid of their hazardous materials.
