Residents encouraged to dispose of household hazardous waste and unwanted medications at event in Clermont

RELEASE DATE: September 8, 2016

CLERMONT— Lake County Solid Waste, in partnership with the Lake County Sheriff's Office, is encouraging Lake County residents to dispose of unwanted household hazardous materials and medications in a safe and environmentally conscious way at an upcoming collection event. 

The county’s Household Hazardous Waste Mobile Unit will be collecting items from 9 a.m. - noon on Thursday, Sept. 15 at the Lake County Sheriff's Office substation parking lot, located at 15855 State Road 50, Clermont.  Representatives will be on-hand to collect unused or unwanted medications in addition to small quantities 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 collection event is open to Lake County residents with proof of residency.                       
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 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, located at 13130 County Landfill Road in Tavares, by calling 352-343-3776.
