Household hazardous waste collection events to be held in Eustis and Mount Dora

RELEASE DATE: February 28, 2018

TAVARES — Lake County Solid Waste is encouraging Lake County residents to dispose of unwanted household hazardous materials in a safe and environmentally conscious way at two collection events in March.

The county’s Household Hazardous Waste Mobile Unit will be collecting items at the following Golden Triangle locations:


Thursday, March 8 from 9 a.m. – noon

Thursday, March 22 from 9 a.m. – noon

Eustis Square Shopping Center


218 W. Ardice Ave., Eustis

17030 U. S. Highway 441, Mount Dora

Representatives will be on-hand to collect small quantities of waste products such as lawn and gardening materials, photo and swimming pool chemicals, paint and related products, cleaning solutions, motor oil and gas, batteries, fluorescent lamps, light bulbs and small propane tanks. Materials such as infectious waste, solvents, chemical laboratory waste and radioactive waste are prohibited.

Staff at the events will be offering convenient drive-thru collection of items so participants can remain inside their vehicles.

Excessive amounts of hazardous materials will not be accepted due to limited space in the mobile unit. If residents have large quantities of items to dispose of, a drop-off may be scheduled at the Central Solid Waste Facility, located at 13130 County Landfill Road in Tavares, by calling 352-343-3776.

The events are open to Lake County residents only with proof of residency.
