Heartland CHMM – September General Meeting: Tour of Kansas City, Missouri Regional Household Hazardous Waste Facility
Friday September 7, 2018 3 PM

Most homes have chemical containing products that are used for cleaning or maintenance, such as drain cleaners, lawn chemicals, paints, or lubricants. Disposal of these products, when they are unwanted or unused, becomes a problem for the community and the environment if they are disposed of in the trash or poured down a sink or storm drain.
Join us as we tour the Kansas City, Mo Regional Household Hazardous Waste Facility to learn how this facility manages household hazardous waste through reuse, recycling, and proper disposal. Facility staff will discuss the regional collection program, including mobile collection events, and give participants a trip through the process, from the moment the waste arrives at the door through to its packing for shipment to final disposal.
At the conclusion of the tour, we will gather at a nearby location (TBD) to network and socialize.
