Medicine, housing, food, textiles, fuel… these and thousands of associated products can be created from hemp – not something you would have thought of 10 or 20 years ago as a viable industry here in the states, but the turn around in our country’s understanding of our history with hemp now gives business a projected 24 billion dollar new industry by 2024…More
Waterford, Michigan – Residents of 18 Oakland County communities have a final chance this year to dispose of their household hazardous waste in a safe and environmentally responsible way.
The NoHaz Consortium collection event is set for Saturday from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Oakland County Service Center, 1200 N. Telegraph Road, in Pontiac. The site is near building 26E on the county campus. Signs on the campus will direct residents to the collection location.
“The collection gives residents of our 18 NoHaz Consortium communities a safe and responsible way to dispose of a variety of household hazardous waste,” County Executive David Coulter said. “If you live in a NoHaz community, this is your last opportunity this year to drop off household hazardous waste.”
Household hazardous waste (HHW) items include paints, bleach, computer and electronic waste, insecticides and propane cylinders, among other items. Only residential waste is accepted – no contractor or business waste. A complete list of acceptable items – and those that will not be accepted – is available at www.NoHaz.com.
Residents of the 18 communities may dispose of their HHW for a nominal fee of $10, $15 or at no charge, depending on their community. Any Oakland County resident who does not reside in a NoHaz community may dispose of acceptable materials for a fee of $50. The fee list is found at www.NoHaz.com.
The NoHaz communities are Addison Township, Brandon Township, Groveland Township, Independence Township, Lake Angelus, Lake Orion Village, Leonard Village, Oakland Township, Orion Township, Ortonville, Oxford Township, Oxford Village, Pontiac, Rochester, Rochester Hills, Rose Township, Springfield Township and Waterford Township.
The NoHaz Consortium is a group of Oakland County communities that have come together to provide residents with a safe, reliable and environmentally responsible way to dispose of household hazardous waste. These wastes are the substances in your home that can be harmful to humans and the environment if not disposed of properly.

It’s better to be lucky than good. There was no main event. There were no real “names” on the card last Saturday night on February 23 at the Dearborn Civic Center. The best matchmakers Kenny Moore and Aaron Rodriguez could come up with for an opponent for the one true prospect slated to box, the 6-0 junior-middleweight Joseph Bonas, was an 0-3 boxer, about whom the less said, the better. Bonas told me after the card was over that he would likely be fighting in Mexico in March, where he notched his last two wins.More
