Hazardous waste collection took place Saturday at the Napa County Fairgrounds where residents were able to discard hazardous household items such as paint, cleaning products, used oil, old gasoline, batteries, and light bulbs.

The yearly event is put on by the Upper Valley Waste Management Agency, and typically 200 – 250 people drop off items, said Christy Pestoni, with Upper Valley Disposal & Recycling. Pestoni and members of her crew volunteer their time during this event to direct traffic and collect survey data from attendees. 

The county's licensed hazardous waste company, Stericycle Environmental Solutions, handles the materials at these hazardous waste collection events.

A lot of what gets dropped off this event is unused paint, which can get reformulated into new paint, said Doug Calhoun, with Napa County Planning, Building, & Environmental Services Department.
