LEESBURG – Lake County Solid Waste and the Leesburg Police Department are teaming up to encourage Lake County residents to dispose of unwanted household hazardous materials and medications in a safe and environmentally conscious way.

The county’s Household Hazardous Waste Mobile Unit will be collecting items from 9 a.m. – noon Thursday, April 6 at the Lake County Maintenance Area 1 parking lot, located at 2310 Griffin Road in Leesburg.

Representatives will be on-hand to collect unused or unwanted medications in addition to small quantities of 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. Materials such as infectious waste, solvents, chemical laboratory waste and radioactive waste are prohibited.

The staff at the event will be offering convenient drive-thru disposal of items so participants can remain inside their vehicles.

The collection event is open to Lake County residents with proof of residency.

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, drop-off may be scheduled at the Central Solid Waste Facility, located at 13130 County Landfill Road in Tavares, by calling 352-343-3776.
