Properly Dispose of Household Hazardous Waste on May 21

Loudoun County's Department of Construction & Waste Management will host a Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection event from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 21, 2011, at River Bend Middle School, 46240 Algonkian Parkway, Sterling.

HHW includes items such as fluorescent bulbs, household batteries, oil-based paints/stains/varnishes, paint thinners, metal polishes, rust removers, wood preservatives, furniture polish, waxes, pesticides/insecticides/herbicides, pool chemicals, old fuels including gas/oil mixes, and many others. Latex or water-based paints are not a hazardous waste and can be dried or solidified and disposed of in your household garbage. 

Used motor oil, antifreeze, automobile batteries, lead-acid batteries and propane tanks will not be accepted at any HHW collection events. They can be recycled year round at the Loudoun County Solid Waste Management Facility on 21101 Evergreen Mills Road.

For more tips on proper paint disposal, items accepted or not accepted at the event, or the 2011 HHW event schedule, visit the Loudoun County website at www.loudoun.gov/hhw or call the Department of Construction and Waste Management at 703-777-0187.
