Household Hazardous Waste Collection Set for June 8

The public is encouraged to bring its household hazardous waste to the final spring collection event from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, June 8 in the Union College parking lot at 52nd Street and Cooper Avenue.

The next collection won't be held until August 25, so residents of Lincoln and Lancaster County are encouraged to safely dispose of these unwanted items now:

Residents are reminded to take the steps necessary to safely transport products to the collection event. Products should be in their original containers, protected from potential spills during transport, and placed away from the passenger area of the vehicle.

Items that can be recycled or safely disposed of and will not be accepted include latex paint, motor oil, gas grill cylinders, pharmaceutical waste, electronics and batteries.

About 29,000 pounds of hazardous material has been safely recycled or properly disposed of at this year's first three collections. For more information, visit the City website at lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: recycling) or call 402-441-8021.
