Spring is finally in the air here I think, even if the rain's making things feel less than tropical. So if you're in the Columbus area and need an excuse to launch a spring cleaning campaign, here's one:
The Keep Columbus Beautiful Commission is holding a Household Hazardous Waste Recyling Day from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday at 25 22nd Avenue (across from Dolly Madison on Victory Drive). We're going to unload some old cans of paint and who knows what else. I only wish they were taking expired pharmaceuticals so I could finally safely clear all the expired medicines out of our cabinets.
Anyway, here's what you can unload:
• Paint and Solvents - latex paint, oil-based paint, furniture strippers, paint thinners, etc.
• Lawn Care Chemicals - fertilizers, pesticides, pool chemicals, herbicides, fungicides, etc.
• Cleaning Products - bleach or products containing bleach, ammonia or ammonia-based products, all-purpose cleaners, furniture polish, spot removers, scouring powder, oven cleaner, bathroom cleaner, bug spray, etc.
• Automotive Products - motor oil, oil filters, gasoline, anti-freeze, lubricants, car batteries, brake fluid, transmission fluid, car wax, metal polish, etc.
*Common electronic equipment including computers, printers, fax machines, copiers, and consumer electronics (no televisions).
