MOUNT DORA – The Lake County Solid Waste Division is encouraging residents to dispose of toxic materials in a safe and environmentally conscious way at an upcoming Household Hazardous Waste Collection event from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday, Sept. 12, in the parking lot at Walmart, 17030 U.S. Highway 441, Mount Dora.
The County’s Household Hazardous Waste Mobile Unit will be on-hand to collect unwanted household hazardous waste. Residents will be able to drop-off 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-thru disposal of unwanted household hazardous waste, so residents won’t have to leave their vehicle.
Materials such as infectious waste, solvents, chemical laboratory waste and radioactive waste are prohibited. Prescription drugs will not be collected at this event.
