Household Hazardous Waste Roundup set for Saturday

There will be a free Household Hazardous Waste Roundup for up to 35 gallons total per participant on Saturday, May 11, from businesses, schools, churches or non-profit organizations may be subject to disposal fees.

The collection will be from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at South Lane County Fire & Rescue, 233 Harrison Ave. in Cottage Grove.

All community members are welcome to participate in the Roundup.

What to bring: Paint, household cleaners, lawn and garden chemicals, car care products, arts and crafts products, and other household hazardous waste.

Check labels for words like flammable, corrosive, poison, caution, and danger.

Do not bring: Empty containers, drums, radioactive waste, asbestos or explosives. Any empty containers can be safely thrown in the trash.

For information about disposal of radioactive waste, asbestos and explosives, call 541-682-4120.

Businesses, non-profit organizations, schools and churches that generate small amounts of hazardous waste may pre-register to bring that waste to this event. They must pay for disposal of the waste, but most can save money by using this program, rather than hiring a contractor on their own.
