Body:

The GLOW Region Solid Waste Managment Committee has begun taking appointments for the 2017 Household Hazardous Waste/Pharmaceutical Collection Event.  The collection will be held on Saturday September 16th in Mt. Morris, Livingston County.  The collection is open to residents in Genesee, Livingston and Wyoming Counties.  With the exception of tires ($4.00/Passenger tire - $10/Truck Tire)  materials are accepted at NO CHARGE.  Pharmacueticals, such as outdated, unwanted or unusable medicines will be accepted (No Needles).  In order to participate, residents must make an appointment.  Six hundred (600) spots are available.  The appointment process has worked extremely well at past collections.  It gives GLOW and its vendors an idea of what materials are coming, helps eliminate materials that can't be accepted and in most cases, has resulted in very little time spent in unloading lines.
