Harnett County Solid Waste will sponsor a one-day Household Hazardous WasteCollection Event Saturday, October 20, 2018, from 8 a.m. until noon at the Anderson Creek Landfill at 1086 Poplar Drive, Anderson Creek. This event is held in cooperation with the Harnett County Center of the NC Cooperative Extension and the NCDA & CS Pesticide Disposal Assistance Program.
In addition to household hazardous waste, agricultural and home pesticides and herbicides will be collected. Items that will be collected include automotive products, fertilizers, oil-based paints and stains, solvents and cleaners, items containing mercury (including fluorescent bulbs), electronics and batteries. Residents should label any containers without original labels and bring materials in non-leaking containers. Latex paint will be accepted at this event, however latex paint is non-hazardous and may be disposed of with regular trash as long as it is dried and hardened. Cat litter can be used to help dry and harden latex paint.
This event is intended for residential collection only. No commercial waste will be accepted.
