A common occurrence in on-post housing is the collection of Hazardous Waste. Some may not even realize that they are hazardous and dispose of them incorrectly. To prevent this from happening Fort Carson will be hosting a free household hazardous waste collection event. This event will help to teach the residents in the military housing community and those that are military affiliated about household hazardous waste dangers. For instance, in regards to household products, they will be collecting items such as:
Aerosols, ammonia, batteries, bleach, cleaners (carpet, drain, oven and toilet), cooking and lamp oils, cosmetics, degreasers, deodorizers, fire extinguishers, floor cleaners/waxes, furniture polish/wax, laundry products, mercury, moth balls, photographic chemicals, propane and butane tanks (1 pound and 20 pounds), rust removers, silver cleaners, spot removers, etc.
There is a list of items that will be accepted at this drop-off location on the website. This will be a good time to go through your garage and get rid of those hazardous items that are taking up space. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call 719-526-4349 or 719-491-0218.
