Hazardous Waste Day 10/12/19 served 321

On Saturday’s Household Hazardous Waste Day we collected from 321 vehicles.  We took in things from pain & pesticides to computers & batteries.  We even had a tanning bed come in.  We had a record amount of paint come in and saw a lot of Roundup being turned in as well. WCSO was on hand to collect prescriptions, sharps and ammunition.  This was the first time that we combined forces to offer the disposal of those items and it was well received by residents and  it was well utilized. This event is held with the assistance of a grant through Jefferson County.  We had Jefferson County employees, Wakulla County Public Works employees, WCSO work crew and KWCB with their volunteers to assist the residents in disposing of their hazardous waste.

Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office will have deputies on site to help with disposal of ammunition, prescriptions, and sharps.10.19 Ad
