Area residents will have more opportunities than ever this summer to safely dispose of their troublesome household wastes, including paint, household chemicals and electronics. Mid Michigan Waste Authority's problem waste program has expanded to include 5-6 drop-off days per month. The program, which is offered to residents of Saginaw County, Bethany Twp, Village of Breckenridge and Wheeler Twp, has also been retooled to reflect the county's problem waste disposal needs. "When we reviewed the data from our 2015 household special waste events, the first thing we noticed was that paint made up nearly two-thirds of the materials collected," Katharine Tessin, MMWA Administrative Director, said. "We want to be responsive to the county's needs, so this year we are offering three days per month devoted solely to paint collection."
