The annual Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) mobile collection, hosted by the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio (SWACO), is Saturday, Sept. 29 from 8 a.m.to 2 p.m. at the Kingston Center, 3126 Kingston Ave., Grove City. Franklin County residents may bring their old gasoline, lighter fluid, thinners, pool chemicals, oil-based paints, spray paints, fluorescent light bulbs, propane tanks under 20 pounds, all types of batteries and corrosives such as drain cleaners. Latex and water-based paints are water soluble and are not considered hazardous. Paint hardeners, cat litter or sawdust may be added to left over latex paint in order to solidify the unused product. The lid may also be left off to speed up the drying process. Once dried it may be disposed of with your regular trash. There is a $1 per container charge for the disposal of latex/water based paint. Residents can find a detailed list of accepted and non-accepted items on the SWACO website.
Franklin County residents can also take advantage of SWACO’s permanent HHW collection site at 645 East 8th Ave. in Columbus (the corner of East 8th and Essex Avenue) open Wednesday, Thursday and Fridays. Visit the SWACO website for hours of operation.
