Solid Waste announces two upcoming household hazardous waste collection events in May

RELEASE DATE: May 5, 2016

TAVARES — Lake County Solid Waste is encouraging county residents to dispose of toxic materials in a safe and environmentally sensitive way at two upcoming household hazardous waste collection events in Lady Lake and Groveland.

The county’s Household Hazardous Waste Mobile Unit will be on site from 9 a.m. – noon on Thursday, May 12, at the Lady Lake Convenience Center, located at 1200 Jackson St., in Lady Lake and from 9 a.m. – noon on Thursday, May 26, at the Ace Hardware store parking lot, at 1007 W. State Road 50 in Groveland. 

The collection events are open to Lake County residents only.
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.

Staff at the events 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 amounts of hazardous materials will not be accepted due to limited space in the mobile unit. If residents have large quantities of items to dispose of, a special drop-off day may be scheduled at the Central Solid Waste Facility at 13130 County Landfill Road in Tavares. To schedule a drop-off, call 352-343-3776.
