Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day
Saturday, October 17, 2020
Garland County residents can bring household hazardous waste to the county fairgrounds for a safe, free disposal of unused/leftover household products containing toxic, flammable, corrosive or reactive chemicals. A paint exchange area will also be available for paint that is still usable/stored in the original container with a legible label. Passenger tires (no rims) and electronic waste will also be accepted.
“This drive-through event helps prevent improper disposal of hazardous waste, including placing them in household trash, pouring them down sinks, toilets or storm drains, or dumping them on the ground,” said CHS Solid Waste Director Randy Atkinson. “Left stored improperly at home, hazardous waste can pose danger to children/pets, and possibly cause hazardous fumes/fires.”
The event, sponsored by the SWC Regional Solid Waste Management District, is for household quantities only. Hazardous waste from companies/businesses will not be accepted. For info., call 501-321-6911.
