Common household cleaners, paints, propane tanks and batteries can be hazardous to children, pets and the environment if not disposed of properly. Additionally, these items can spark truck fires that place Waste Management employees and first responders at risk.
The potential for danger increases in the event of a damaging windstorm or hurricane that can spread the debris through neighborhoods and into waterways.
On Saturday, May 22, Collier residents can bring their household hazardous waste, batteries, used oil, electronics, medical sharps and more for safe disposal at one of the County’s seven recycling drop-off centers.
