Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day

  • Date: July 18, 2020

From the Gwinnett Clean and Beautiful Site:

Summertime is a great time to dispose of your household hazardous waste! Join us Saturday, July 18th from 8:00am to 12:00pm for the 4th Annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day! Gwinnett residents are allowed to bring up to five “containers” of household hazardous waste for FREE! See below for more information on what all you can fit in a “container,” i.e. laundry basket, copy paper box, or similar sized container. CONTAINERS WILL NOT BE RETURNED

Start gathering your HHW items and bring them to Gwinnett County Fairgrounds, located at 2405 Sugarloaf Pkwy in Lawrenceville. This event is brought to you by the Gwinnett Department of Water Resources and Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful.

To ensure the safety of our attendees, staff and vendors, there will be certain precautions in place to help navigate the COVID19 social distancing guidelines:

  1. These precautions could result in slight delays of one hour or more in line
    1. All attendees are required to stay in their cars at all times
    2. No refreshments will be offered, so please come prepared with water and a snack in case the line backs up
    3. No portable restrooms will be available
    4. Vehicle windows must remain up at all times while in the unloading zone
    5. Containers will not be returned; it is suggested to bring materials in disposal containers or boxes
    6. Materials that cannot be removed safely will remain in the vehicle and can be brought again at the next event

This level of preparedness and awareness will enable a safe and successful event for everyone. We appreciate your patience!
