The summer months present another need to get rid of chemicals that are just sitting in your home unused because rising temperatures could make a few of these items a hazard to you and your family.

Killeen and Harker Heights residents are invited to get rid of those unwanted and unused chemicals on Saturday June 9th in the rear parking lot of the Killeen Civic and Conference Center at 3601 W.S. Young Drive from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.

Accepted materials include flammables, corrosives, oxidizers, poisons, paint and fluorescent lamps. Materials should be in original containers if possible and should be loaded carefully and secured for transport.

A complete list of accepted and prohibited materials along with other useful information is available at www.killeentexas.gov/hhw.
