The Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event will take place on Saturday, October 14, 2017 from 8:00am-1:00pm at the Garland County Fairgrounds, 4831 Malvern Avenue, Hot Springs, AR 71901.
Household Hazardous wastes are unused or leftover household products containing chemicals that are toxic, flammable, corrosive or reactive. These products should NOT be disposed of in household trash, poured down sinks, toilets, storm drains or just dumped on the ground. Left stored improperly at home, they can be a hazard to children and cause fumes or fires. For more information, call the Solid Waste Department at 321-6911.
