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.
