Coming early next month will be a chance for Harford County residents to get rid of certain hazardous household products that they may not have figured out how to get rid of safely.

On Saturday, May 4, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Local Emergency Planning Committee, in cooperation with Harford County Office of Recycling, is offering Harford County residents the opportunity to safely dispose of their household hazardous waste products, such as oil-based paints, cleaning products, bleach, pool chemicals, herbicides, pesticides and mercury thermometers.

The collection will be held at the Mulch & Compost Facility of the Harford Waste Disposal Center, located at 3135 Scarboro Road in Street.

The event is free and open to all Harford County residents.
