 News Release

Household hazardous waste to be collected during events in Leesburg and Fruitland Park

RELEASE DATE: March 30, 2018

LEESBURG — Lake County Solid Waste is encouraging Lake County residents to dispose of household hazardous materials and unwanted medications in a safe and environmentally conscious way at two collection events. The county’s Household Hazardous Waste Mobile Unit will be collecting items at the following locations:


Thursday, April 5 from 9 a.m. - noon

Thursday, April 19 from 9 a.m. - noon

Fruitland Park City Hall parking lot

Maintenance Area 1 parking lot

506 W. Berckman St., Fruitland Park

2310 Griffin Road, Leesburg

Household hazardous waste only

Household hazardous waste & unwanted medication in partnership with Leesburg Police

Staff will be offering convenient drive-thru disposal of items so residents won’t have to leave their vehicles, and will be on-hand to collect 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 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. If residents have large quantities of items to dispose of, a special drop-off can be scheduled at the Central Solid Waste Facility, 13130 County Landfill Road, Tavares, by calling 352-343-3776.

The collection events are 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 Lake County Solid Waste at 352-343-3776.
