Residents invited to dispose of hazardous materials during a collection event in Clermont

RELEASE DATE: February 17, 2016

CLERMONT—The Lake County Environmental Services 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 in Clermont.

The county’s Household Hazardous Waste Mobile Unit will be available from 9 a.m. - noon on Thursday, Feb.  25 at the Lowe’s parking lot, located at 1501 Sandy Grove Ave., Clermont.
Staff at the event will be offering convenient drive through disposal of items so residents won’t have to leave their vehicles. Representatives will be collecting 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.

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 Environmental Services Division at 352-343-3776.
