The DeKalb County Sanitation Division is hosting its biannual household hazardous waste recycling event this Saturday, Oct. 21 from 8 a.m. – noon, at the Sanitation Division’s Central Transfer Station, 3720 Leroy Scott Drive in Decatur.

If you’re a DeKalb County resident, dead on over and recycle aerosols, batteries, adhesives, flammables, lawn care products, fluorescent light bulbs, photo chemicals, artist supplies, paint and paint-related products!

However, don’t try to recycle s agricultural waste, ammunition, pharmaceuticals, radioactive materials, and biohazardous and biomedical waste.  Those items won’t be accepted.

Thanks to a commenter in FFAF, we’ve been alerted to the fact that there’s a DeKalb Hazardous Waste Disposal Event tomorrow morning.

This is one of the rare occasions when DeKalb residents can get rid of items at no charge such as: paint, batteries, lawn care products and cleaners.
