If you’re like me, I’m still wondering where did the summer go? It seems like it was just the fourth of July and we were doing some late spring cleaning. If you’re wondering when the Autumn Equinox is it is September 23rd at 4:21 a.m. ET. (Yes fall is around the corner)
Many of you may be doing your fall cleanup: putting away your hoses, blowing out the sprinkler system, and getting your planting beds and lawns ready for winter. In your Fall home owner ToDo list, you may find you have some left over items from your spring efforts, such as oil based paint, herbicides, fertilizers and anti freeze, etc. If wondering how you dispose of these items, check your local city and county web sites to see when they collect these items.
The City of Littleton is having their yearly Household HazMat Round Up on September 12th and September 19th between 8:00 a.m – 2:00 p.m. The collection center is located at the Englewood Service Center, 2800 S. Platte River Drive (on the east side of the South Platte River). The event is open to Littleton and Englewood residence and there is a $20.00 co-pay. Residency will be verified at the event.
If you do not live in Littleton, here is a list of other areas and their HazMat collection information.
