Athens Services, as part of its contract with Glendora, will schedule a free hazardous waste collection event.

Workers will go door to door collecting a wide array of hazardous materials Saturday, May 16. Items accepted will be auto fluids, paint, paint thinner, household cleaning products, pool chemicals, garden chemicals, household batteries, car batteries and florescent lights.

To schedule a pickup, call (888) 336-6100 by 5 p.m. by Friday, May 8. Be prepared to provide a complete list of items to be picked up and quantities of each.

Organizers ask residents to place items in a sturdy box to prevent spills and place the box on your porch.
