Monroe County Solid Waste will host a Household Hazardous and Electronic Waste collection on Saturday, Nov. 21 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Bernstein Park, 6751 5th Street, Stock Island. Disposing of hazardous and e-materials is free at the event for residents.
Household hazardous waste are products often found in the garage, sheds, storage areas, or under the kitchen sink. They are corrosive, flammable, reactive, or toxic. These chemicals can contaminate Monroe County's sensitive ecosystem. It is incredibly important to dispose of these chemicals properly.
