Erie County residents will be able to dispose of hazardous household materials from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 12 at the CID transfer station on
Hopkins and Tifft streets.
The semiannual pickup, sponsored by the county, allows homeowners to dispose of old lead-acid and dry-cell batteries, oil-based paints, paint thinners, solvents, used motor oil and waste gasoline, antifreeze and as many as two tires.
Items to be disposed of are to be household-generated -- not commercial, farm or business, according to the county department of Environment and Planning said. For further information, call the hot line at 858-6800 or visit the county's Web site at www.erie.gov.
