VERNON - Vernon residents may dispose of hazardous waste at the Olcott Street facility in Manchester. The collection dates for 2013 are April 13; April 27; May 11; September 7; September 21; and October 19. In addition, there will be a hazardous waste collection at Somers High School located at 3 Vision Boulevard on October 5. All collections are held on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The drop-off is free to Town residents but the Town is billed $42 per participating vehicle, therefore it is requested that residents bring as many hazardous materials as possible to the collection site, possibly car-pooling with neighbors. The following items will not be accepted: asbestos; smoke detectors; compressed gas cylinders; ammunition; fireworks; explosives; and fire extinguishers. Motor oil and antifreeze may be disposed of at the Transfer Station at no charge to Vernon residents.
