The Goshen County Conservation Districts and Goshen County Weed and Pest sponsor a hazardous household waste collection day each fall. Contributors to the program include Goshen County Commissioners, the Town of Torrington, and the Town of Lingle to help reduce landfill waste and protect ground water. Donations have also been received from Simplot in 2016 to help defray costs of the service.
This service is provided through funds budgeted from each of the sponsors and contributors, so donations the day of the event are always greatly appreciated.
This is a great opportunity for local residents to discard lead and/or oil based paint, solvents, pesticides, and fertilizers, as well as e-waste such as cell phones, batteries, conical shaped televisions and monitors, computers, small kitchen appliances, stoves, refrigerators, air conditioners, and light bulbs.
Things that WILL NOT be accepted include: business waste, radioactive waste, explosive wastes, asbestos waste, compressed gases, tires, cylinders.
