Have some old gas left over from snow blowing  — or maybe even last year’s grass cutting — season? How about an old motorcycle battery or insecticide or pool chemicals or flourescent bulbs? You can’t just throw them into the garbage. So how do you get rid of them in a responsible way?

Take your household hazardous waste down to the County Center from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. this Saturday. Pleasant Prairie, in conjunction with Kenosha County and Waste Management/Pheasant Run, will be hosting a household hazardous waste collection event that day.

Among the materials accepted are:

Aerosol cans, bug sprays, floor care products, metal polish, furniture polish, oven cleaners, drain cleaners, bathroom cleaners, tile cleaners, disinfectant ,batteries, old gasoline, gasoline/oil mixed, brake fluid, auto repair products, transmission fluid, other oils/cleaners, oil paints, paint thinner, paint stripper, varnish, antifreeze, chemical fertilizer, fungicides, herbicides, rat poison,  artists’ paints, fiberglass epoxy, gun cleaning solvents, moth balls, pool chemicals, photographic chemicals and fluorescent bulbs.

Not accepted are: biological material or medical wastes, commercial waste, propane cylinders, explosives, radioactive materials, latex paint (not considered hazardous), or tires.

If you have questions about Hazardous Waste Disposal, please contact the Pleasant Prairie Sanitation Department at sanitation@plprairie.com or 262-925-6700.

The County Center is located at Highways 50 and 45 in Bristol.

If you miss Saturday, there will be a similar event from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 12, at the Roger Prange Municipal Center, 8600 Green Bay Road, Pleasant Prairie.
