MARCOLA, Ore. -- At the Marcola Household Hazardous Waste Roundup on Saturday in Lane County, you can get ride of old paint and other hazardous waste for free.

The event is a chance to get rid of household cleaners, lawn, garden and pool chemicals, car care products, arts and crafts products and fluorescent lamps.

You can check labels for words like flammable, corrosive, poison, caution and danger.

Organizers said it’s important to get those items out of your house if you no longer need them.

“The fire department is a great partner for us,” program supervisor Don Strunk said. “If they have to go out and fight a fire in one of these homes, and if you have a lot of pesticides out there, lots of flammables sitting around, makes their job, their already difficult job, even harder to get a fire out, especially if you’re dealing with toxics while you have the house burning.”

Some things can’t be dropped off, including empty containers, drums, radioactive waste, asbestos, electronics and explosives.

To participate in the roundup, stop by the Marcola Transfer Station, 38935 Shotgun Creek Road, between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27.

There is a limit of 35 gallons per customer.
