Household Hazardous Waste Program


Since 2014, the City of Brewer has operated its own Household Hazardous Waste program with great success. The program takes place once a year, typically on the first Saturday of October, and accepts a variety of hazardous waste. Acceptable waste for the program includes paint, thinner, gasoline, waste motor oil, pesticides, fertilizer, etc.
