Eliminating Hazardous Waste, Cleaning Our Community

The Household Hazardous Waste and Electronic Waste Free Cleanup Event hosted by the Solid Waste District on June 13, 2015 was a success. There were 323 people who attended—159 participants in Lander, 135 in Riverton, and 29 Dubois participants—freely disposing of:

  • 99,000 lbs. of electronic waste
  • 345 gal. of chemicals
  • with a disposal cost of $46,000

Most of the electronic waste from the June event was disposed of with the Metech Company of Denver, Colo. The household hazardous waste materials collected were incinerated by the Clean Harbors Company.
