Residents encouraged to dispose of household hazardous waste at upcoming collection event

RELEASE DATE: October 26, 2012

SORRENTO — The Lake County Solid Waste Division will hold a Household Hazardous Waste collection event on Thursday, Nov. 1 from 9 a.m. to noon at Sorrento Park, located at 31535 Church St., Sorrento.

This event will give residents an opportunity to safely and easily dispose of unwanted household hazardous waste, 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 collection of unwanted household hazardous waste materials at events like this allow for them to be disposed of in an environmentally sensitive manner,” said Johnny Taylor, Lake County’s Hazardous Waste and & E-Cycling Supervisor.

Materials such as infectious waste, solvents, chemical laboratory waste and radioactive waste are prohibited.
