household hazardous material disposal Sat. 8/9

[from an informational flyer, just received] Just about every Chicagoland resident has products in their home that are dangerous to the environment, themselves and their families – from old paint cans to insecticides, from batteries to fluorescent light bulbs and prescription or unused drugs.

Continuing to offer Chicago residents the opportunity to "be safe at home" and remove potential hazards to the environment or family members, the City of Chicago – in partnership with the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and Northeastern University – is offering safe disposal of dangerous, everyday products on Saturday 8/9, 9 am – 3 pm in the parking lot of Northeastern Illinois University, located at 3701 W Bryn Mawr Ave.

For residents on the South Side, the City of Chicago will also be holding another Environmental Resource Event on Saturday 9/20 at a City of Chicago Facility located at 900 E 103rd St.
