Polite Orders

Household hazardous waste disposal is available in Marion County at the Salem/Keizer transfer Station located on Deer Park Dr. SE, just east of the state Corrections on Highway 22 east. This is the place to dispose of leftover oil-based paints, thinners, used motor oil, etc. if your local trash collector doesn't provide the service. There is no fee. You enter the drive-through, pop the trunk and they take care of it. These kinds of products should never be dumped down a storm drain or in open ditch, or flushed, or put out with the regular trash that ends up in a land fill. Proper disposal--it's a good thing!

I always feel encouraged when I see governments taking all forms of recycling seriously.

We still have a long way to go.

Thanks Jill.

An excellent global reminder Jill. We must ALL take immediate action to repair the damage already caused and preserve what little we still have.
