Household hazardous waste materials can potentially contaminate water resources and pollute the air. To help protect the environment and ease the burden on Gwinnett residents, the County's Fiscal and Solid Waste Management Division, Department of Water Resources, and Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful are partnering to host the County's first household hazardous waste recycling event on August 11 from 9:00am to noon at the Department of Water Resources Central Facility, located at 684 Winder Highway in Lawrenceville. Gwinnett residents can drop off five containers each of household hazardous waste for free.
The event is limited to Gwinnett residents and proof of residency may be required.
