Household hazardous waste collection day

Community collection days
St. Johns County Solid Waste Management will host a Community Collection Day on Saturday, May 17, from 8:00 a.m. until noon according to a media advisory from Karen Pan received yesterday afternoon.

The Office of Public Affairs advised Historic City News that the event will occur at Bartram Trail High School, located at 7399 Longleaf Pine Parkway in St. Johns.

A Community Collection Day provides residents an opportunity to safely dispose of household hazardous waste, obsolete electronics and tires. Some examples of household hazardous waste items include paint, oil, cleaners, pesticides, batteries and pool chemicals.

To allow the best service to residents, a few restrictions apply.

No microwave ovens or large appliances are accepted. Also, each household is limited to disposing no more than ten tires. The Community Collection Day is also for residential materials only; no commercial items, construction materials, garbage or yard trash will be accepted.
