Have you been holding on to old paint, chemicals, fluorescent light bulbs, oils, antifreeze or other products that cannot be disposed of easily? If so, the City of Bowling Green and Warren County have partnered to provide ways to dispose of these items for you.

The Household Hazardous Waste Day will be held on Saturday, March 20, 2021 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 999 Lauren Avery Drive (out 31W towards Warren East High School).  Warren County residents can bring items such as old paint, chemicals, household appliances and electronics to dispose of in a safe and legal manner.

This event is FREE and open to all Warren County residents.

In addition to the large scale event on the 20th, Batteries Plus (1150 US 31W Bypass) will be accepting batteries throughout all of March and Sherwin Williams (1689 Campbell Lane) will be providing paint harder during the same time frame. A two day limited event will be held from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on March 18 and 19 at 999 Lauren Avery Drive to collect paint, batteries and electronics only.

While most home computers and appliances are acceptable (most anything with a circuit board or a cord), Freon devices, yard equipment, radioactive materials and large appliances such as stoves, washers, dryers, etc. are not acceptable. Single containers larger than 5 gallons will require prior inspections and approval, and tires will not be accepted.

In addition, shredding will be available on site to dispose of and shred papers, cds/dvds, magazines, phone books, folders, etc.
