Residents who want to – finally! – get rid of stuff in their garages and basements can take note of 2015 hazardous collection dates and what can actually be brought to the site.
Materials will be collected the third Saturday of the month starting in April and ending in October. The collection site is located at 6200 21st Street, west of Hwy 31 and north of the former Sam’s Club.
Stuff like brake fluid, thermostats with mercury, rust remover, and certain fertilizers are accepted, but acid-based batteries, smoke detectors and latex paint are not.
Hazardous waste collection is open to residents of Caledonia, Elmwood Park, Mount Pleasant, North Bay, Racine, Sturtevant and Wind Point.
