CLERMONT — Lake County Solid Waste is encouraging Lake County residents to dispose of toxic materials in a safe and environmentally sensitive way at two household hazardous waste collection events. The county’s mobile unit will be on site from 9 a.m. – noon on the following dates and locations:

  • Thursday, June 8, at the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Sub-Station, located at 15855 State Road 50, Clermont, collecting household hazardous waste and unwanted medications.
  • Thursday, June 22 at the Lowe’s parking lot, located at 1501 Sandy Grove Ave., Clermont, collecting household hazardous waste only.

Representatives will collect small quantities of unused or unwanted waste products such as lawn and gardening materials, photo and swimming pool chemicals, paint and related products, cleaning solutions, motor oil and used gas, batteries, fluorescent lamps, light bulbs and small propane tanks.

Staff at the events will be offering convenient drive-thru disposal of items so residents won’t have to leave their vehicles. Materials such as infectious waste, solvents, chemical laboratory waste and radioactive waste are prohibited.

Excessive amounts of hazardous materials will not be accepted due to limited space in the mobile unit. If residents have large quantities of items to dispose of, a drop-off may be scheduled at the Central Solid Waste Facility, located at 13130 County Landfill Road in Tavares, by calling 352-343-3776.

The collection events are open to Lake County residents only.
