People looking to get rid of dangerous materials, like batteries, aerosols and fluorescent light bulbs, will have an opportunity on Saturday, April 30.

There will be a Household Hazardous Waste Recycling event from 8 a.m. to noon at the DeKalb County Sanitation Division’s Central Transfer Station, 3720 Leroy Scott Drive, Decatur, GA 30032. The event will be hosted by Keep DeKalb Beautiful, the Sanitation Division’s community outreach department.

“Participants will have an opportunity to properly dispose of dangerous household chemicals that are no longer in use,” a press release from the county says. “Hazardous materials such as aerosols, batteries, adhesives, flammables, lawn care products, fluorescent light bulbs, photo chemicals, artist supplies, and paint-related products will be accepted. Items such as agricultural waste, ammunition, pharmaceuticals, radioactive materials, and biohazardous and biomedical waste will not be accepted. Donations will be limited to 10 gallons of paint per vehicle.”

The event is free and available to DeKalb County residents only. The county might even request a photo ID to confirm residency.
