(Lawrenceville, GA., July 10, 2019) – Do you have hard-to-dispose-of items like paints, pesticides and batteries stacking up around your home? Get rid of those items for free at the Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources’ second annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day Saturday, July 20 from 8 a.m. until noon at the Gwinnett County Fairgrounds. Gwinnett County residents may bring up to five containers each of household hazardous waste for free disposal. Containers can be defined as boxes, laundry baskets or plastic tubs.

Ammunition, radioactive waste, pharmaceuticals and biomedical/biohazard waste items will not be accepted at the event.
