DeKalb County to Sponsor a Household Hazardous Waste Round-up
Commissioner Kathie Gannon, DeKalb County Commissioner for Super District 6 encourages all neighborhood organizations to publish information in your newsletter, on your website or to your list-serve regarding an upcoming opportunity for citizens to dispose of environmentally dangerous household products.
On Saturday, March 31, 8 a.m. to noon at the DeKalb County Central Transfer Station, 3720 Leroy Scott Drive near the intersection of Memorial Drive and Kensington Road, residents can safely dispose free of charge:
- Automotive oils and other solvents
- Fluorescent bulbs
- Photo Chemicals
- Hobby and artists supplies
- Paints and paint-related products
- Cleaners and swimming pool chemicals
Household hazardous waste is classified as products that contain potentially dangerous chemicals and are no longer used. These products should not be mixed with regular trash and can be potentially harmful to the environment if not disposed of properly.
DeKalb County encourages residents to take advantage of this opportunity to clear their homes of unneeded or unused household hazardous waste and to help keep county landfills and the environment safe for everyone.
Please make sure to bring only items on the items accepted list or they will be turned away.
Items NOT accepted:
- Bio-hazardous/Bio-medical waste
- Agricultural waste
- Radioactive materials
- Non-hazardous waste
If you have questions about the event or would like to volunteer, please contact Keep DeKalb Beautiful at (404) 371-2654 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
