Household hazardous waste day at Front Park Saturday

Household items no longer in use and that shouldn’t be thrown away in regular garbage can be disposed of in the city’s Household Hazardous Waste Day from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Front Park.

The Department of Public Works will collect pesticides, fertilizers, pool and household chemicals and cleaners, oil-based paints, spray cans, paint thinner, stripper and solvents, batteries, oil, gasoline, kerosene, antifreeze, tires, electronic waste, mercury, propane tanks and fluorescent light bulbs. For more information, call 851-4890.

“This is a safe, smart and free way of disposing of materials that could be hazardous to residents, and we encourage people to start saving these items now and drop them off to us on October 25,” Mayor Byron Brown said.
