Those at the event say it’s important to have a place to safely dispose of dangerous waste. “Everything that goes into our environment makes a difference and when we bring it into a situation like this, these guys know how to dispose of it, where I don’t,” said Victoria Young, who was at the event.

The Household Hazardous Waste Collection Center offers free disposal of waste year-round.
