Household hazardous waste and unwanted medications to be collected in Clermont

-

CLERMONT – September 21, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — The Lake County Solid Waste Division, in partnership with the Lake County Sheriff’s Office, is encouraging Lake County residents to dispose of unwanted household hazardous materials and medications in a safe and environmentally conscious way at an upcoming collection event.

The county’s Household Hazardous Waste Mobile Unit will be collecting items from 9 a.m. – noon on Thursday, Sept. 24 at the Lake County Sheriff’s Office South Substation, located at 15855 State Road 50, Clermont.

Representatives will be on-hand to collect unused or unwanted medications, in addition to small quantities of waste products such as lawn and gardening materials, photo and swimming pool chemicals, paint and related products, cleaning solutions, motor oil and used gas, batteries, fluorescent lamps, light bulbs and small propane tanks.

The staff at the event will be offering convenient drive through disposal of items so residents won’t have to leave their vehicles. Materials such as infectious waste, solvents, chemical laboratory waste and radioactive waste are prohibited.

Excessive amounts of hazardous materials will not be accepted due to limited space in the mobile unit. Residents wishing to dispose of large quantities of items may do so at the Central Solid Waste Facility at 13130 County Landfill Road, Tavares.

The collection event is open to Lake County residents only.

For more information about this event, or to find out about future collection events, visit www.lakecountyfl.gov/hazardouswaste or call the Lake County Solid Waste Division at 352-343-3776.
