Solid Waste Authority News Release:
SWA Household Hazardous Waste Tip: Dispose Of Your Household Hazardous Waste at SWA for Free
Solid Waste Authority Household Hazardous Waste Tip #1: Home Chemicals - Save your shelf this spring by cleaning out home hazards from sheds, garages and under sinks. Cleaners, paints, pesticides and automotive products have no place in the regular trash or down storm drains where they can expose people, pets and our environment to harm. Instead, Palm Beach County residents can dispose of their unwanted chemicals at any of the SWA's seven convenient drop-off locations for FREE.
Solid Waste Authority Household Hazardous Waste Tip #2: Fluorescent light bulbs use less electricity than a standard incandescent bulb, last longer, and give off less heat, making them a cost-effective lighting alternative to regular incandescent bulbs. However, fluorescent lamps do contain mercury, and should not be thrown away in the trash.
Palm Beach County residents are asked to bring their used fluorescent bulbs, and other mercury containing devices such as thermostats, thermometers, electrical switches and liquid mercury, to their nearest SWA Home Chemical and Recycling Center. Palm Beach County residents can dispose of these unwanted chemicals for FREE at any of the SWA's seven convenient drop-off locations.
