LEESBURG — The Leesburg Police Department and Lake County Solid Waste are teaming up to encourage residents in Lake County to dispose of unwanted hazardous household materials and medications in a safe and environmentally conscious way on Thursday, May 23.

Residents will have an opportunity to turn in their unwanted hazardous waste and medications to the County’s Household Hazardous Waste Mobile Unit which will be at the Lake County Maintenance Area 1 parking lot located at 2310 Griffin Road in Leesburg from 9 a.m. until noon on Thursday.

Unwanted or expired medications, small quantities of waste products such as lawn and gardening materials, photo and swimming pool chemicals, paint, cleaning solutions, motor oil, used gas, batteries, fluorescent lamps, light bulbs, and small propane tanks will be collected by representatives during the collection.

Other materials such as infectious waste, solvents, chemical laboratory waste, and radioactive waste will not be accepted.

A drive-thru collection line will be available for residents so that residents can remain in their vehicles during the process.

The event is available only to Lake County residents and those wanting to drop off items are required to bring proof of Lake County residency.

Due to the limited space available in the mobile unit, excessive amounts of hazardous materials will not be accepted.

Residents with large quantities of items to dispose of are asked to schedule a drop off at the Central Solid Waste Facility located at 13130 County Landfill Road in Tavares by calling (352) 343-3776.
