Do you have unused chemicals, oils or pesticides sitting in your shed or garage? The City

hazardous materials out of the environment. On Saturday, April 12, 2014, the Household
Hazardous Waste Program 2nd Saturday Collection will be held at 4004 S. Park Ave. from 8 a.m.
to noon. Drop off of HHW is free for residents.

electronics equipment, toxic cleaning products, fluorescent lamps, paints, solvents, lawn and
garden products, and computer equipment ($2 for monitors without computer). The program
