Household hazardous waste to be collected on June 12 in Umatilla

RELEASE DATE: June 6, 2014

UMATILLA — The Lake County Solid Waste Division is encouraging Lake County residents to dispose of toxic materials in a safe and environmentally sensitive way at an upcoming Household Hazardous Waste Collection event. The county’s Household Hazardous Waste Mobile Unit will be available from 9 a.m. - noon on Thursday, June 12 in the parking lot adjacent to the Umatilla Fire Department located at 1 Cassidy St., Umatilla.

Representatives will be on-hand to collect small quantities of unused or unwanted 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 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 amount 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 any of the six drop-off locations including 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.
