Montco hazardous waste disposal is Sunday

MONTGOMERY COUNTY

Hazardous-waste disposal is Sunday at Abington Junior High

ABINGTON The fourth "Household Hazardous Waste Recycling" event sponsored by Montgomery County will be Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Abington Junior High School in Abington, a county spokeswoman said.

These events are meant only for Montgomery County residents.

Items they can deposit include gasoline, paint thinner, stains and varnish, pool chemicals, pesticides, cleaners and solvents, thermometers, fire extinguishers, and certain types of batteries and lightbulbs.

If residents miss Sunday's event, they will have two more chances - on Sept. 20 at Spring-Ford 9th Grade Center in Royersford and on Oct. 19 at the Lower Merion Public Works Complex - to deposit their household hazardous-waste items.
