The Leon County Solid Waste Management Division announces the next monthly Household Hazardous Waste & Electronics Collection, which will take place on Saturday, March 5, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Public Works Operations Center, 2280 Miccosukee Road. This will be the first of only three more of these collection events at Public Works before the summer break.
When discarded, many household products can pollute and pose a health risk, so the Leon County Solid Waste Management Division holds these free events for County residents. Businesses and other agencies must call (850) 606-1816 to make an appointment to drop off their items. Some fees will apply.
Citizens may bring up to 50 lbs. of hazardous waste, in addition to their electronics. Propane tanks must weigh less than 40 lbs., and there is a limit of one tire per participant. Medical sharps, medicines and radioactive waste cannot be accepted.
Operating hours for the Leon County Hazardous Waste Center, located at 7550 Apalachee Pkwy., are Monday through Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
For more information, call the Leon County Hazardous Waste Center at (850) 606-1803 or visit www.leoncountyfl.gov/HHW/collection/ for the complete collection schedule.
