Ensuring one’s own safety is the primary concern of every individual. Having a family to protect makes it doubly important. You’re quite sure that you already made all the necessary precautions to make your house secure and safe especially for your young ones, and yet it seems that danger is still lurking somewhere at your house. And it’s boggling you most of the time.
You’ll find the answer just right under your nose, or more specifically on your basement or underneath your kitchen sinks. Harsh chemicals and household wastes like old paint, used motor oil, batteries, household cleaning supplies are among those domestic supplies that pose a great threat to your safety. Other hazardous household wastes are solvents, pesticides, lawn and pool chemicals, propane tanks, compact fluorescent light bulbs, tires (a maximum of four per person), fire extinguishers, car batteries, flares, mercury thermometers, televisions, computers, monitors, keyboards, mouse, printers, fax machines, cell phones, and rechargeable batteries. All of these unsafe wastes should be disposed properly according to the Household Hazardous Waste Collection policy to ensure safety for the inhabitants and more so, to safeguard our environment.
Thus, the City of Broward County and Broward County are partnering to host a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day on Sunday, January 20 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. This significant event will be held in the parking lot at City Hall South, 9530 West Sample Road. All the local residents are encouraged to bring all the Household Hazardous Wastes they can find in their house for proper disposal. Professionals will be available to assist and offer tips and ways on how to properly dispose these wastes. This event is solely for domestic wastes only, and will not include business generated wastes. If you need more information or if you have questions regarding this upcoming event, please feel free to call Broward County Waste and Recycling Services at 954-765-4999.
Free your household of these hazardous wastes and you’ll definitely enjoy a good night sleep everyday!
