JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — You know that old bottle of herbicide in your garage that you hate to throw away because it's bad for the environment? Well, now you can get rid of toxic, domestic products without guilt by participating in Johns Creek's Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day on Sept. 15. And it's free.

Drop off old paint, expired chemicals, electronics and other hazardous waste between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. at the Home Depot parking lot at 5950 State Bridge Road near Medlock Bridge Road.

"Many products we use around the house every day – cleaning supplies, paint or pesticides – have the potential to contaminate the groundwater or cause environmental harm if they go in a landfill," said James Swope, Johns Creek solid waste manager. "Not only are they hazardous if they go into a landfill, but they can be hazardous to store at home. This gives Johns Creek residents an opportunity to dispose of toxic waste in a safe and environmentally sound manner."

Unfortunately, the program cannot accept medical waste or needles, ammunition, pharmaceuticals or trash and non-hazardous items.

Pre-registration is required, and space is limited. Because of the potential volume of hazardous waste and affiliated costs, the event is limited to Johns Creek residents. The program is sponsored by the city of Johns Creek and Keep Johns Creek Beautiful.

Register at www.KeepJohnsCreekBeautiful.org. For more information, call 770-551-7766 or email info@keepjohnscreekbeautiful.org.
