Each year our department collects an average of 46,000 pounds of paint through our biannual household hazardous waste (HHW) events. Much of that paint can be diverted from the high-cost HHW events through proper disposal. Did you know LATEX PAINT is not hazardous in a solid form? Once it is non-flowable, it can be disposed of safely in your household trash! Dry it up & throw it out!!
Iredell County, in conjunction with the NC Cooperative Extension, offers free pesticide, insecticide, fungicide, and herbicide disposal at this event to farmer's in our area. For more information, please contact Nancy Keith, County Extension Director at (704) 878-3165 or by e-mail at Nancy_Keith@ncsu.edu.
