Some people prefer to do their spring cleaning in the fall.
If you’re one of those people, or if you have a bunch of cans and bottles filled with oil, chemicals and other liquids you don’t need, here’s some good news: You can dump them for free in Johns Creek.
The city and Keep North Fulton Beautiful are hosting a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day on Nov. 10, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Target parking lot on 5950 State Bridge Road.
To dispose of your chemicals there, you must pre-register online. The event is only open to residents of Johns Creek.
Here’s what you can bring:
• Paint (but in less than 10 containers and less than 10 gallons)
• Herbicides and pesticides
• Motor oil
• Propane cylinders
• Fire extinguishers
• Smoke detectors
• Cooking oils
• Fluorescent lightbulbs
The city asks that people not bring medical waste, pharmaceuticals, ammunition, explosives or alkaline batteries.
