Bucks County is holding a Household Hazardous Waste collection event on Saturday, Aug. 13, from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Bensalem High School, 4319 Hulmeville Road. Free.

Household products containing toxic chemicals, like pesticides, oil-based paints, solvents, cleaning products, weed killers and automotive batteries can be a threat to people and the environment if improperly discarded. Never throw these materials into the trash, as the toxic chemicals may harm sanitation workers, or result in fires in collection vehicles. It is also not safe to pour them into a sink or storm drain, as they can end up in the environment polluting air, water or soil.

Residents may bring up to 25 gallons or 220 pounds of hazardous products. Hazardous products will have cautionary words on label, for example: danger, warning or caution.

Unlike prior events, no advanced registration is necessary. Click here for more information and a list of acceptable items.
