Keep ForsythCounty Beautiful (KFCB), in partnership with the Forsyth County Recycling and Solid Waste Department and the City of Cumming, invites residents to participate in the Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Recycling and Disposal event from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 16, at the Cumming Fairgrounds' parking lot 3 (235 Castleberry Rd.).

 

Online registration and a printed confirmation are required for participation. Registration for county residents opens at 10 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 4, at keepforsythcountybeautiful.org. Availability is on a first come, first served basis until the maximum amount of materials or vehicles are registered for participation.

 

Items that will be accepted include corrosive, ignitable, toxic and/or reactive HHW such as paints, cleaners, oils, fuels, batteries, fluorescent or HID light bulbs, herbicides, pesticides and more. Items that will not be accepted include medical waste, needles, ammunition, explosives, pharmaceuticals and non-hazardous items.

 

A full list of accepted materials may be found at keepforsythcountybeautiful.org, by emailing KFCB@forsythco.com or by calling (770) 205-4573.   

 

“This event provides a great opportunity for residents to responsibly recycle household hazardous materials,” Forsyth County Environmental Program Manager Tammy Wright said. “Things that people use every day, such as cleaning supplies and paint, can be hazardous not only to people but the environment if not disposed of properly.”

 

There is no charge for dropping off household hazardous waste during the event. A $5 donation is requested to help support Keep Forsyth County Beautiful, a 501c3 non-profit organization.
