Filed under DAYTONA BEACH, EVENTS

Hazardous Waste Amnesty Day is set for Saturday, Sept. 28 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the city’s Public Works facility at 950 Bellevue Ave., Daytona Beach.

Residents have an opportunity to safely dispose of common yet potentially hazardous household items, including paint, thinners, solvents, pesticides, fertilizers, household chemicals, batteries, pool chemicals, anti-freeze and propane tanks.

“Because of their potential to contaminate our environment or water supply, these types of materials should never be included with your regular household garbage. Daytona Beach residents must show proof of residency and there is no cost to drop off items,” stated a press release from the city.

Last year, approximately 200 residents dropped off 1,800 gallons of paint, 57 gallons of used motor oil, 35 gallons of antifreeze, 144 batteries and 21 propane tanks.

For questions about the drop-off program, call 671-8670.
