The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) mobile household hazardous waste collection service will be in Lincoln County on Saturday, April 9.
Tennesseans are encouraged to bring household hazardous waste – including cleaning fluids, pesticides, batteries and more – to a designated drop-off location. A person does not need to live in the county to participate.
The drop-off location is:
Lincoln County – Fayetteville/Lincoln County Recycle Center, 705 Main Ave. S., Fayetteville, 8 a.m.-1 p.m. The contact is Carol Fulmer at (931) 703-2435.
Household hazardous waste materials are considered flammable, toxic, reactive and/or corrosive and should not be placed with regular garbage. Typical items to dispose of include cleaning fluids, pesticides, mercury thermometers and thermostats, fluorescent lamps, lithium and button batteries, aerosols, adhesives, medications, brake fluid, swimming pool chemicals, paint thinner and used needles in sturdy containers.
Items not accepted include ammunition, explosives, alkaline batteries, paint, electronics, and any empty containers that should be disposed in normal trash. There is no cost or appointment necessary for household hazardous waste collection.
