Warren County’s Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day will take place Saturday at Sherman Avenue Elementary School, 2145 Sherman Ave., in Vicksburg.

Household hazardous waste disposal company Tradebe was hired again this year to assist residents of Warren County in the disposal of items that cannot be disposed of via routine garbage pickup or recycling.

“Hazardous Waste Day is a great example of getting state support through funding for community issues, in this case, debris and trash,” Board of Supervisors President Kelle Barfield said. “It’s a huge volunteer effort in terms of county employees who come out to support it, and it’s a fantastic opportunity to get rid of those things in your garage or shed or even your kitchen counter that you’re not sure how to dispose of properly.”
