Household Hazardous Waste Collection

Do you have old cleaners, paint, electronics or other household hazardous waste (HHW) cluttering up your home? Bring them down to SugarHouse Park this THURSDAY!!

This event is FREE to all Salt Lake County Residents:

Date: Thursday, August 27, 2009
Time: 7:00am - 10:00am
Location: SUGARHOUSE PARK - (Garden Center-North entrance of Sugar House Park)
1602 East 2100 South
Salt Lake City, UT

According to the EPA, The average home can accumulate as much as 100 pounds of HHW in the basement, garage, and in storage closets. HHW is anything in and around your home that is poisonous, flammable, corrosive, toxic, or requires special disposal practices. It is many of your cleaning supplies, yard care chemicals, pesticides, fuels, batteries, CFLs, used oil and antifreeze, old medications, pharmaceuticals, and electronics. (All Salt Lake City collection events have a police officer present to collect old medications.) This is the last collection event of the summer- don’t miss it!

Also, for information about some safe alternative to hazardous household products, check the Salt Lake County Valley Health Department.
