Hazardous Waste Drop Off Day is October 1st

BATON ROUGE, La. (THE LOUISIANA WEEKEND) - Many of us need to dispose of leftover hazardous household products. Without proper disposal, these products may catch fire, explode, or contaminate groundwater.   Instead of pouring these products down the drain, get rid of them in a safer manner.  East Baton Rouge Parish is hosting an event where you can bring everything that you cannot put in the trash or pour down the drain.  Dispose of all of your household waste at Household Hazardous Waste Drop Off Day on Saturday, October 1, 2022 from 9:00am until 1:00pm at LSU Touchdown Village on South Quad Drive in Baton Rouge.

Materials accepted include Aerosol cans, antifreeze, oil, diesel, automobile tires, cooking oil, batteries, pool chemicals, and more.  See the flyer below for more details.

This event is for East Baton Rouge Parish residents.  You will need to present identification. To learn more about household hazardous materials and how to dispose of them year-round, visit https://www.brla.gov/893/Household-Hazardous-Materials
