Erie County Will Be Holding A Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event
There's a good chance there's something that's kicking around in your garage that you'd like to throw out, you just don't know where to do it.
If you've ever tripped over an old propane tank in your garage, or you're tired of spilling that jar of paint thinner and you want to get rid of it, this event is for you.
But where do you put it? It shouldn't go in the trash to be picked up and you don't want it sitting in the garage. It can be disposed of properly at this event.
