NASHVILLE — The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) mobile household hazardous waste collection service will be in Carter, Cheatham, and Weakley counties on Saturday October 9.
Tennesseans are encouraged to bring household hazardous waste – including cleaning fluids, pesticides, batteries and more – to a designated drop-off location. A person does not need to live in the county to participate.
Weakley County Drop-Off Location: UT Martin Recycling Center, 105 Moody Ave., Martin. 8 a.m.-noon. The contact is Eric Pelren at (731) 881-7263.
Since the program’s inception in 1993, more than 360,000 Tennessee households have properly disposed of more than 23 million pounds of material. There have been over 1,400 one-day collection events.
