Johns Creek to Host Household Hazardous Waste Workshop

JOHNS CREEK, GA -- The Fulton County Public Works Department will host a free household hazardous waste workshop on Wednesday, Sept. 29 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. The workshop will take place at the Ocee Branch Library (5090 Abbots Bridge Road, Johns Creek, 30005).

A typical home can contain many types of hazardous household products used for cleaning, painting, beautifying, lubricating and disinfecting the house, yard, workshop and garage. Chemical-based household products in a single home may seem insignificant, but when millions of homes across Georgia use similar products -- handling, storing and disposing of them improperly -- the combined effort can become a major problem.

The hazardous waste workshop will educate residents on how to use alternative household cleaners. The health and safety of people, animals, the community and the environment are endangered when chemical-based products are discarded in storm drains, household garbage or sinks.

For more information or to sign up for the workshop, contact Fernell Patterson either via email or at 404-612-8110.
