DUNWOODY, Ga. — The cities of Dunwoody and Chamblee are partnering for a free household hazardous waste recycling event from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m on Aug. 24 at Plaza Fiesta, 4166 Buford Highway NE.
“We’re actually holding two events with Chamblee,” said Dunwoody Community Development Director Richard McLeod. “The first is in Chamblee. The second will be on October 13 at the Georgia State University Dunwoody Campus.
“Both offer residents a great way to dispose of hazardous items safely. It’s an important initiative of our Sustainability Committee.”
Residents are required to pre-register. Dunwoody residents can register at dunwoodyga.gov/wasterecycling.
Chamblee residents can register at hazardouswaste-chamblee2019.eventbrite.com.
They’ll need to bring proof of residency to the event. Disposal is limited to residential quantities.
“We’re happy to come together to provide these services in one big event,” said Rebecca Keefer, Chamblee planning and development special projects manager. “This way, items that are toxic, flammable, reactive or corrosive don’t enter our environment and damage soil, groundwater and streams or cause harm to people and animals.”
