 News Release

Household hazardous waste collection event to be held in Sorrento

RELEASE DATE: November 6, 2020

Sorrento – The Lake County Solid Waste Division, along with Keep Lake Beautiful, is encouraging Lake County residents to dispose of unwanted household hazardous materials in compliance with CDC guidelines in a safe and environmentally conscious way at an upcoming collection event from 9 a.m. - noon on Saturday, Nov. 14 at Sorrento Park, located at 31535 Church St. in Sorrento.

Staff 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 used gas, batteries, fluorescent lamps, light bulbs and small propane tanks. The waste collection event is available to Lake County residents only. Materials such as infectious waste, solvents, chemical laboratory waste and radioactive waste are prohibited.

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

For more information about this event, or to find out about future collection events, visit www.lakecountyfl.gov/hazardouswaste or call the Lake County Solid Waste Division at 352-343-3776.
