2021 Lakes Region HHW Collections:
Did you know that lead poi- soning from ingested lead fishing tackle is the leading known cause of adult loon mortality in New Hampshire? The Lakes Region Planning Commission (LRPC) is partnering with the Loon Pres- ervation Committee to collect illegal lead fishing tackle at this year’s Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Collection. Res- idents and taxpayers from the 24 participating Lakes Region communities can bring their lead sinkers to any of the 8 collection sites, for no additional charge. Each household can also bring up to 10 gallons or 50 pounds of other HHW for safe disposal.
