'Nuclear Waste'

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is another in a series of recycling tips from the City of Covington's Neighborhood Services Department, Solid Waste & Recycling Division.)

COVINGTON, Ky. – Think of it as the average home’s version of spent fuel rods from a nuclear reactor – dangerous waste that’s difficult to get rid of in a safe and eco-friendly manner and devastating to future generations when you don’t.

Things like aerosol cans, pesticides, propane tanks, kerosene, and batteries – aka Household Hazardous Waste, or HHW. On Saturday, residents of Covington (and all of Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties) can drop off their HHW at a free event from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at UC Health Stadium (home of the Florence Y’alls).

See for details, such as what’s accepted and what’s not, as well as limits.

And note:
1) You MUST download the registration form from that site, fill it out, and bring it with you.

2) Expect a wait. Last year, 3,000 vehicles showed up.

 The event is sponsored by the Northern Kentucky Household Hazardous Waste Action Coalition.
