The City of Largo is hosting the free Household Electronics and Chemical Collection event on Saturday, Sep 15 from 9am-2pm at Largo High School (410 Missouri Ave N). This easy, drive-through event allows Pinellas County residents the opportunity to safely dispose of and recycle potentially hazardous material.
Accepted items include fluorescent light bulbs, cleaners, computers, TV’s, printers, ink cartridges, and rechargeable household batteries, pesticides, paints, paint thinners, fertilizers and automotive fluids. For a complete list of accepted items, contact Pinellas County Solid Waste at 727-464-7500.
The City of Largo reminds residents that hazardous waste items should never be disposed of in residential trash collection. These chemicals have the potential to contaminate our ground, air, and surface water if they reach the county's landfill. Hazardous waste can also cause potential harm to Solid Waste workers.
This service is offered for free to Pinellas County residents. Visit PinellasCounty.org/SolidWaste for a complete list of accepted items. Businesses looking to safely dispose of chemicals or electronics can arrange for drop-off by calling EQ Florida at 813-319-3400.
