Gwinnett County wants to help you get rid of the hard-to-dispose and potentially hazardous items lying around your house.
The county is holding a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day on July 20. You can bring items like paint, pesticides, cleaning chemical and batteries to the Gwinnett County Fairground from 8 a.m. to noon.
You can bring up to five containers of items to dispose of for free. Containers should be boxes, laundry baskets or plastic tubs.
The event will not accept ammunition, radioactive waste, pharmaceuticals and biomedical or biohazardous waste, according to a county release.
The event is in partnership with Gwinnett Clean and Beautiful, a local group focusing on the county’s environmental health. You can find more information and a list of acceptable items here.
The Gwinnett County Fairgrounds is located at 2405 Sugarloaf Parkway in Lawrenceville.
