Electronics, Household Hazardous Waste Collection Announced
WHO: Leon County
WHAT: Household Hazardous Waste & Electronics Collection
WHEN: Saturday, January 8, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
WHERE: Public Works Operations Center, 2280 Miccosukee Road
Because the New Year holiday will fall on the first Saturday in January,
Leon County's regularly scheduled Household Hazardous Waste &
Electronics Collection has been moved to the second Saturday of the
month. The event will take place on Saturday, Jan. 8, from 9 a.m. to 1
p.m. at the Public Works Operations Center, 2280 Miccosukee Road.
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. The Rural Waste Service Centers and the Solid Waste Management Facility on Apalachee Parkway, including its administrative offices, will be closed on Christmas Day and New Year's Day.
For more information, call the Leon County Hazardous Waste Center at
(850) 606-1803 or visit www.leoncountyfl.gov/HHW/collection for the
