Prescription drugs, hazardous waste to be collected in Leesburg

RELEASE DATE: March 27, 2013

LEESBURG – The Lake County Solid Waste Division is partnering with the City of Leesburg Police Department to have a Prescription Drugs Take-Back and Household Hazardous Waste Collection event. Lake County residents will be able to dispose of unwanted medications in a safe and environmentally sensitive way, which will prevent others from improperly using these materials.
 
The event will be from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday, April 4 in the parking lot of the former Sim’s Furniture Galleries, 1715 Citrus Blvd., Leesburg. 

Residents also will be able to dispose 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 County’s Household Hazardous Waste Mobile Unit offers convenient disposal with drive-thru service.

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

For more information about the event, call the Lake County Solid Waste Division at 352-343-3776.
