To get utilities reconnected, to dispose of household hazardous waste, and other tips

UTILITIES: If your property has been impacted by the recent flood or tornado, this is how you start the process  with the county Building Department to reconnect your utilities:

Note: County Commissioners have waived the fees usually required for permits to reoccupy damaged buildings through March 16.

HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTES:  If your home has been impacted by flooding in the last several days, and you want to dispose of household hazardous wastes, here is what you need to do.

These include solvents, pesticides, pool chemicals, paint. They should not be poured down the drain or disposed of in the trash.

Clermont residents can call 513.732.7894 to get a voucher which will pay for disposal of household hazardous wastes at Environmental Enterprises in Cincinnati.

We can email or mail the voucher to you; you are responsible for transporting the material to Environmental Enterprises.

Oil and latex based paint can be dried by mixing with kitty litter or other absorbent material and disposed of in the trash once it is no longer liquid.

HAZARDOUS DRUMS, TANKS: If you see potentially hazardous fuel drums, propane tanks, etc, that have washed up on your property or other areas, please call 911 and let the dispatchers know where the items are.
