When: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 12

Where: Municipal Building Parking Lot, 1820 McLaughlin Run Road

Why: Leftover household products such as paints, cleaners, oils, batteries and pesticides contain potentially hazardous ingredients that require special care when you dispose of them.

The improper disposal of these wastes can pollute the environment and post a threat to human health. 

What Not To Bring: Explosives, ammunition, radioactive materials, large appliances, smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, pharmaceuticals, syringes, medical waste, tires, mercury-containing items
