Conway Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day is coming up next month, on Saturday, September 22 from 8:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Conway Transfer Station, 755 East Conway Road. This is for the towns of Albany, Bartlett, Conway, Eaton, Jackson, Madison, and Hale’s Location. There is a 10 gallon limit per household. Please note that local contractors cannot transport waste to this event. Prior arrangements can be made with the environmental contractor prior to the event. You may call 447-3811, ext. 223 for contractor information.

Why should you be concerned? The average household throws 15.5 pounds of hazardous material into the trash each year. These materials are disposed of in other ways, too, such as used oil, frequently poured down storm drains, and many products end up going down the sink drain to septic systems or sewers. Flammable or reactive household chemicals can release toxic fumes or even explode if they are mixed together in the trash, causing fires or injuring workers. Dumping solvents into septic systems or landfills may contaminate ground and surface waters, ruining drinking water and killing fish and wildlife. Pesticides can damage sewage treatment plants, and oil poured into storm drains can flow directly into streams and ponds.

There are also certain health threats associated with some of these products, like lye can burn skin, eyes, or respiratory passages. Exposure to some pesticides, paints and solvents can cause weakness, confusion, dizziness, irritability, headaches, nausea, sweating, tremors and convulsions. Other repeated chemical exposures can cause cancer or birth defects. Children are also vulnerable to these products and accidental poisonings can occur if these products are not properly stored. In New Hampshire, the third and fourth leading causes of poisoning are personal care products and cleaning substances behind prescription and nonprescription drugs. These substances should be stored safely and, if not used, disposed of properly. In my next two columns (September 4 and September 18), I will list the items you can bring on Collection Day.

Eaton Town Beach: please remember that you must have a pass or a sticker to get on the beach. Town Hall has them if you haven’t gotten yours yet. If anyone sees a street light out around the beach (or town), please let Town Hall know and they will report it to the proper authority. I shouldn’t have to mention this, but please do not allow your child to urinate in our lake. If every child did that with all these hot and humid days, our beach could be shut down. The porta-potties are there for everyone to use, so bring your children over there. You also may not use the grassy area between the beach and Camp Waukeela either. We all want to keep our beautiful beach as pristine and healthy as possible for our residents and guests. Please cooperate.

The Inn at Crystal Lake’s Opera Dinners will return with The New England Tenors on Friday, September 28. This show always sells out and is one of the Inn’s busiest events of the year, so do make your reservations soon. $65/person includes a four-course dinner and lots of wonderful music, both operatic and popular. Do not miss this concert. (Movie Night Mondays are not continuing this month.)

Snowvillage Inn celebrates Tuesdays with Locals’ Night, Wednesdays with Wine Club members receiving with one free glass and half off appetizers, and Thursdays with Oyster Orgy. Come early to watch the sunsets from the porch.

Despite the pouring rain, the turnout at the South Eaton Meetinghouse Fair on August 4th was excellent, as was the fabulous food. Definitely plan on attending this Fair/Gourmet Luncheon next year because you won’t find better food or a better array of white elephant tables, book sales, plus a gourmet dessert table. Many thanks to everyone who organized, worked at, and made food for this wonderful event.

If you happen to see Marie Robins, make sure to wish her a very happy 90th birthday! This beautiful lady was surrounded by family, her husband Jim of 54 years, all of her wonderful children and more family and friends in a picture-perfect setting. We love you, Marie, and may you have many more birthdays.
